  • spam filter test tool...

    Hello,

    we just installed a spam filter solution and now we want to test it...
    but how can we do this? is there any tool for it, or is there a site which can do that?

    so what we're looking for is some site or tooling which can send us spam.

    anyone who can help me?

    thnx

    It depends on the type of filtering you're using.

    If it is DNS based Black List if you or someone not on the list sends real spam there's a chance it won't be blocked. If its a Heuristic engine such as MS's IMF the best way would be to post a test account on a forum or newsgroup to have users forward you known spam.

    If you setup an account I'd be willing to send you 50 or so msgs to help you out.

        If you just want to send messages to yourself, here's a VBscript to do it.
        You'll need to download http://www.activexperts.com/activemail to enable a simple mail engine to spam yourself. Then create a sample database with junkmail in it. The script will do the rest.

        Code:
        targetAddress = "[email protected]"
        targetName = "Test User"
        targetServer = "w2k3-s1.company.com"
        
        Set aeObj = 
        CreateObject("ActiveXperts.SmtpMail")
        connString = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};" &_
        
        "DBQ=c:\spamsamples\junkmail.mdb;DefaultDir=;UID=;PWD=;"
        Set Connection = 
        CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") 
        connection.connectionTimeout = 30
        connection.CommandTimeout = 80
        Connection.Open connString
        
        Set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
        rs.open "SELECT * From EMAIL", Connection, 0, 1
        Do While Not rs.eof
           aeobj.clear
           aeObj.HostName = targetServer
           msgBody = rs.Fields("Body")
        
        Echo the e-mail message to the screen before sending it. 
           WScript.Echo "From: " & rs.Fields("FromName") & " " & rs.Fields("FromAddress")
           WScript.Echo "To: " & targetAddress
           WScript.Echo "Subject: " & rs.Fields("Subject")
           WScript.Echo msgBody
           wscript.echo string(40,"*") 
           'Assign entries to the ActivEmail object
           aeObj.FromAddress = rs.fields ("FromAddress")
           aeObj.FromName = rs.fields ("FromName")
           aeObj.AddTo targetAddress, target Name 
           aeObj.Subject = rs.fields("Subject")
           aeObj.BodyType = 0
           aeObj.Body = msgBody
           aeObj.Send
        
           WScript.Echo "Sent message with this result: " & aeObj.LastError
           wscript.echo string(40,"*") & vbNL & vnNL
           rs.movenext
        Loop
