    Not anything bad, but just so I can send it though my mail server to see if it will catch it. :D

    Any ideas where I could find one? Maybe something that's been out for a couple of years and is easily spotted by anti-virus software.

    The reason for needing a virus was that I just recently installed a "virus wall" to run with my mail server. So it should clean out any incoming and outgoing mail before it either reaches me or anybody I send mail to.

    if I knew how to give you this NIMDA virus that I had I would. It sucks! Gives the creator remote control of your computer. He then steals any financial info you may have on file.

    Yeh I had to download some new software. Took me forever to find it. I guess I am not sure if I got rid of it or not. I dont ever get those virus alert messages anymore so I suppose I did. It made my computer do some crazy stuff.

    I got the virus. Thanks.


    It's kinda weird. Not only did I get a notifcation that you sent a infected email, but it had the virus still in that email. And it send the origional.

    So needless to say I need to do some tweaking and configuration on my end. But I think I'll get it.


    At least I was able to forward that virus onto my hotmail account so I can send that back to myself again whenever I need to. :)

    Mcafee has a "test virus" on the wesite. It is a non descructive non operational virus that will trip any working antivirus. I use it to test my servers every once in awhile.
