Re: [school-discuss] MySQL in classroom


I'll send you my MailWatch MySQL database of email msgs processed through the 
softecusa server.  It has only been recording since April and has over 30,000 
records in it.  Each msg is logged along with its header, spamassassin and 
virus ratings as well as other information.  There are a number of tables.

I can zip it and send it to you.  Let me know >> EMail: ivessm@softecusa.com

BTW, MailWatch is a great addition to the MailScanner program written by 
Julian Field of the UK.  Open Source, integrates virus & spam checking of all 
emails before they go through your MTA.  Both are worth a look.
