The single fastest way is to post to Usenet using that address as a  
"from" address.  You should start seeing lots of spam within 48 hours  
of that.

Then once you start getting spam to that address use the "unsubscribe"  
mechanisms in the spam.  That not only confirms that the address works  
and is read by a human, but that it is read by a gullible human.  This  
will make that address a high value spam address.
