Spam filtering in emails
I am planning to write a test approach where one of the feature has Spam filtering in recipient inbox.
So can you please suggest me how to test that feature, are there any tools to check and are there any tools that can insert spams?
You'll have to describe more for me to get a better understanding. Questions might looks silly, but in testing like anything technical, you need to be very precise about the language to get a good response.
Is the software under test a spam filtering tool? What does your software under test work? What technologies does it interact with? Assume I know nothing about the SUT, you'll need to describe it in very detail especially about the work flow and what you want to test for.
When you ask any tools to check, what are you checking? What are the validations you want to do?
When you ask any tools to insert spams, what do you define as spam? This question might sound silly, but spam to one person might be nuggets of gold to another. Many to something with ED, cheap ****** online could be a god send. For example, I think Facebook spams me when it says, "Looks what your friends are doing on Facebook, login and check it out". From a legal perspective, I agreed to their mailings when I signed up for their service, and the feature description for that mailing is provide user notification for inactive users. There could be a whole segment of users who never log onto Facebook and just like reading their friend's update via email.
Spam filtering detailed description.
Thanks a lot for your response.
Below are details I a looking for:
our software is an email service for which we use WCF services /WPF for UI.
Right now, our system sends out emails/smses to customers and we receive the replies from them along with some spam/junk emails as well to the system.
So now there are plans to implement the Junk mail/Spam filtering for inbound messages i.e. receiving messages that they can be flagged as Junk and put them in a new Junk folder other than Inbox.
I asked for any tools is for a reason that I can send some spam/junk emails to my test system as and when required.
So that our new system could handle them and send them to Junk folder and not inbox.
If marked as Junk then also they should go to Junk folder.
When I say spam filtering, for e.g. some bad language, keywords that will send junk mails etc...
Hope this time I have explained better.
Many thanks in advance.
