This is a very interesting question. Why do you need spam from 2006/2007, SPAM TTL is <24, most SPAM engines will not
detect SPAM > 30 days old. I have researched this problem for over a long period of time, most anti-spam products out
there will have issues detecting any type of spam over 2 weeks old, since keeping signature/heuristic bases that huge
will slow down the performance of the product, which is an interesting question in of itself. Why..
You are better off working with a university or local school that retains their mail for some period of time

That was almost perfect. Unfortunately since I am correlating spam data against other traffic types, I need the spam to
be from 2006/2007, and the most recent
one there is 2005.
Thanks anyway though.

Does anyone know organizations which give away spam captures? I mean,
obviously I will get lots of spam just from posting on this list (;)) but
I would like to
get more to analyze. It seems like every couple months some student does a
project which requires spam but they always have to start from ground
there anywhere which gives spam to security researchers?
