    Strange but true. I am trying to get more spam emails sent to me.
    SEMrush
    I want to test some servers and various spam filters. Is there anywhere that I can actively attract emails from spam, adult, junk, drug sites etc. ???? The more rubbish the better.

    Once I have ran the tests I will not be using the email again so I really dont care how much junk comes in.

    You can start by just putting your email here. Go to several forums and leave your email address, sign up for everything you see, reply to the emails sent to you...You will soon get bombed. Everyone and their brother wants emailaddresses for their campaign, so give them yours.

    How about setting up a random wordpress website & then posting the address in a few forums. My old sites used to get spammed without the actual website getting much exposure. Use basic email addresses such as or I think spammers just append generic addresses (info@, sales@, enquiries@) to a domain name & send out emails (not sure if this would work but I found these email addresses use to get spammed the most).

    I can't think of a fast way, except posting your email publicly in many places and maybe some russian sites :D
    You can also register in spam low pr directories or also fill some free surveys in sites that show content for a survey :)

    What are the ways in which e-mail addresses are collected?
    Posting them on a forum or any publicly accessible website (spiders will pick them up)
    Signing up for an account at a website that sells e-mail addresses to marketers (there's a ton of them)
    Signing up for those "Win a free iPod" type deals, and also surveys that promise to pay $75/hour.

    I'm sure there are many other ways addresses get harvested if you think about it/look into it. Each of these ways will attract a different kind of spam from different spammers, so your best bet would probably be to get your e-mail address harvested by as many different means as possible (and not just one of the aforementioned ways).

    Go post your email address in as many forums as possible... sit back and wait. The flood will begin.

    Sign on many sales page and you will get junk.
    Or by giving the email publicly, and maybe someone will write down the email.

    Funny question actually. I wanted to start submitting email addresses of people who are sending me unsolicited email to spam lists. Didn't really find anything in the 15 minutes I spent looking. I'm thinking of starting up a website and just listing the email addresses on it. I'm sure some spammers will find it that way. I'm tired of people harvesting my email address and sending me emails. I'll need to write a simple app to forward emails from Outlook to the site and have it parse the email address of the original sender and add it.

    Sorry, just thinking out loud since you got me thinking about it again :)

    You do realize that both the from and reply-to headers in spam e-mails are forged, right?

    another thing you can do - when you get spam email - reply to them - doesn't matter what you put your reply - have a good swear and let off steam. But it confirms to the holder of the list that you're a 'live prospect' and you'll get passed around.

    Try signing up for the free offers, like making money or free samples etc. Complete surveys and much more and you will start getting TONS of spam emails soon.

    "I want to receive them!" first time i have heard anything like that , post your email address on blogs, - and email as many email marketing companies as you can asking to be on their newsletter lists, fill in newsletters forms on as many websites as you can.

    Yes, I'm not talking about actual "Buy Vicodin" and "You should have an erect p---s 24 hours a day" type of spam. I'm talking about the $c#%b@g$ that buy my name from the $c#%b@g$ that sell them my email address and everyone else's that they have scraped from everywhere and anywhere or bought from my thieving bank or wherever and then are blasting me with their special business offers and "request for a meeting" and staffing requirements and every other damn thing that has a legitimate email address because they actually want to do business with me and think that buying lists is the way to go.

    Sorry, just a minor annoyance really (ok I hate the f#*&#%$). I plan on launching the site within the next month or two. I still need to figure out how to protect people who's email addresses are spoofed and people don't understand ... as mentioned by Nathan. That was something that I've been considering since I came up with the idea since the last thing I want to do is cause more problems for those folks as they've already had their friends pissed because they've probably received junk because their outlook or other email client got jacked.

    I want to make sure it is just like the idiots that fill my email box with junk. They actually continue to send emails "Haven't heard from you so wanted to follow up..." You haven't heard from me because I don't want what you have ...

    Anyway, not trying to hijack the thread. Was just checking back on something and saw Nathan's concern so wanted to address it.
