In this video, Chaim Krause shows the results of several test emails sent to the email server to ensure that antispam and antivirus measures are in effect.
- [Instructor] In order to do some testing,…I'm going to use some documents…that are provided with the package for amavisd.…If you look in the doc directory,…which you see here on the screen,…and look what's inside,…you will see a directory test-messages…and if you look inside of there,…you'll find a README and a file.…The README will tell you how to extract that file…and get test messages that you can send to your mail server…to test SpamAssassin and ClamAV.…
