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?
