Re: Ask for spam...

Here's what I did when researching the same thing ...

Google "free stuff". Find a page with "thousands of free offers". Fill 
one out and check *every* box. Reply to whatever "confirm" emails come in.

I did a few of those "thousand freebie" things to various bogus email 
addresses in a fake subdomain and was getting thousands per day (and it 
wasn't long until the DHA attacks started on that newly created 
subdomain either -- configure your first-touch MTA to blindly accept 
anything as valid if you're curious, just be careful not to relay it).

The nice thing about doing the subdomain trick is you can just delete 
the subdomain when you're done and not waste your bandwidth (and disk 
space) dealing with "test" SPAM.
