That file is actually only in the Mailman source code as a way to 
exercise the email parser package's MIME handling code; Nimda virus 
emails have particularly bad MIME parts, so we wanted to make sure 
Mailman's email parser didn't choke on them.

There's no way to "test" Mailman using that file -- it doesn't even 
contain the whole virus, just part of an infected message.  What exactly 
did you want to test?
