I'm working on a content-based spam filter. The more spam
I have to
train and/or test with, the better the filter will be, so I'd like
everyone to bounce unsolicited junk email to email@example.com. I
have over 400 pieces so far, though since they come from several
contributors, there are probably duplicates.
If you send any junkmail, please leave the headers and body as intact
* Don't make a new message and include the junk mail in it.
* Don't use the "forward" feature on your mailer.
* Don't send the junk as an attachment.
* Don't send more than one piece of junk in a single message.
* Don't quote the message text by inserting characters at the
beginning of each line.
Most of these things aren't that hard to undo, but everyone does
a bit differently and I'd rather not have to go through and fix them
The best way to do it:
sendmail firstname.lastname@example.org < onemessage
formail -ds sendmail email@example.com < manymessages
The "bounce" command in Elm is fine.
If you use Emacs and VM, the following code will bind the 'J' key
the summary window to do the Right Thing.
(defvar flan-junkmail-address "firstname.lastname@example.org"
"The address to forward all junkmail to.")
(defun flan-junk-junkmail (prefix-arg)
"Send all junkmail to 'flan-junkmail-address and delete it."
(vm-pipe-message-to-command (concat "/usr/lib/sendmail "
(define-key vm-mode-map "J" 'flan-junk-junkmail)
