Are there any tools or methods available for this? I haven't found anything, I imagine because such a tool would be rife for abuse.
More good ones here
I used GenSpam  for my thesis on spam filtering, but it doesn't seem to be as comprehensive as others out there, plus using a corpus instead of 'live' email might not be quite what the original poster wants.
Perhaps there is noticeably higher volume because it is Tor and hacker types might find more value in it. I'm not quite sure.
I would need more details about what you're doing, and some assurances about what you would do with the data. What do you actually need? Do you need all the headers? It would be easier if I only needed to provide the bodies.
I would need to look at the data I have, and I might withdraw this offer if it would be too much work. In the meantime, perhaps you could think carefully about exactly what you need.
You can contact me via the email address in my profile. It might take a day or two for me to reply.

> Notably, spammy mailing lists send the most spam. These mailing lists include sites that promise you free credit scores, or insurance quotes, or free ipads etc. These sites stink of spam, but people still continue to give them their email addresses.
But in all seriousness, look at blackhatworld.com (where the spammers gather) and look at how they scrape and spam email addresses (search for "email method"); there are a few ways that everyone else is copying, and you could get your email in there.
I guess that if the emails never bounce they will keep sending new stuff to you. It's like saying "yes, yes, yes" to a sales person, they will just keep adding more stuff :P
Ditto some email lists.
