I am looking for a bundle of spam mails to use with my experiments with Bayesian spam filtering.

Is there any resource for this or does anyone have a bundle to share with me? Something around 4-6gb zip:ed would be a nice start.

Feel free to filter out your own email-address, though this is for personal use and it won't be shared with anyone.

Start a Blogger blog, put up a few posts with an extra Gmail address in the text. Begin to get spam. Harvest with POP3 or IMAP. Enjoy.

I'm sure everyone has a bundle of these emails. But privacy would be breached for most companies if their network administrator share this with you. I don't get much spam if any in my personal email, good luck. :-/

Do it yourself SPAM:

"How to get spam."
