  1. Got it resolved, removed the smart host which was relaying through their ISP. Probably accidentally fixed a few other things while messing around, quite honestly I don't really understand all of it.. But its working now. Gotta learn more about fixing these.. I can set them up from scratch, but i don't know much about fixing a jacked up one.. Mine usually stay running
  2. She told me she has rebooted the server completely, she was advised to do this by AVG after they changed some Exchange settings with AVG. She also rebooted her own computer, which now will not come back up That stuff, I know how to fix well, though...
  3. Sorry, Its Windows SBS2003 with the included Exchange 2003. Unsure of the service pack, I have not been onsite yet. I wanted to do as much homework asI could before coming by. I can tell you this, though, Looking at the MX records, the first four on the list are their ISP's Postini servers. Is it possible that the ISP is rejecting the outbound mail, and causing the error in Exchange because it can't get out using the SMTP protocol? I have been advised by some others to check for an SMTP relay point to the ISP instead of the server sending directly. I know that Postini will exhibit this behav
  4. If it matters, they are running AVG Business Edition. I spoke with them to see if the AVG may have any influence in triggering this message. They said it shouldn't but advised me how to turn off features that "protect" Exchange, like message and spam filtering. But as you said, there may be an infection that is hammering the SMTP server from the inside and it may be crossing some threshold of send attempts per hours or something like that in Exchange. Guess I need to just dig in and find where these settings may exist.
  5. Afternoon, all. I am not too sharp on Exchange.. That said, I have a friend who's exchange server is suddenly not allowing anyone on the network to send email. They can receive just fine. The error message they are getting is pictured below. I have checked their mail server against global blacklists, and they are not blacklisted. This message appears to be coming directly from the exchange server before it ever hits the receiving server anyway, and it happens no matter who they try to send an email to: Help? Thanks, -myk
  6. Yeah, this is a duplicate of my post in User to User, but getting no response there.. I recently setup a new laptop for a client, its running Windows 7 Professional. I am having a problem with RDP connection to this laptop with the username and password being rejected. Its definitely not a networking issue, as the laptop login shows up.. Further investigation shows that when I go into advanced RDP settings to the part with users authorized to access the laptop, the only user shown is "Owner" instead of the actual user account name. When I go to add another user and try to add the actu
  7. I bought 4 TP-Link model TL-WA901ND wireless access points. I am having trouble understanding the difference between WDS mode and Universal Repeater mode. It looks like both will do the same thing, except Universal Repeater mode is WAY simpler to set up. Will either allow seamless transfer between access points? I am trying to create a single wireless network that will allow roaming computers to never lose connection while walking through the building. Thanks, -myk
  8. i cant get that far. If the windows disk doesn't detect that windows is installed, it never gives you the repair option to get the console up. He has all his important data backed up, and i have him up and running on a laptop for now. just gonna reinstall, this thing was running dog slow anyway... thanks, -myk
  9. I have a friend with a crashed HP Touchscreen computer. It wont finish booting, looks like it just needs to have the master boot record repaired. Problem is, when I boot from the dvd, i don't get a repair option, as if Windows doesn't recognize that it is already installed. It shows all the right partitions, etc, but will only allow me to clean install. I tried F8 to get to a console and attempt to repair the bot record, but pressing F8 just yields another black screen of death. What other options do i have? i can back up his data with linux and clean install, but I am trying despe
  10. Looking for a recommendation for software to make a photo slideshow dvd. My needs are VERY simple. I don't need background music or fancy transitions. i just need the ability to play the thing on a set-top dvd player where each photo is actually a paused scene. In other words, I would like the user to be able to advance the photos herself. Thanks, -myk
  11. screw it.... it'd be quicker to just run down to best buy and get a card that is definitely Win 7 compatible... I can use this one in another machine running Linux or and older version of Windows...
  12. I just installed another one from Creative, and the device shows as working, but it is only allowing for SPDIF output. I need it to work through the normal speaker outputs... Any ideas?
  13. No luck, the one I downloaded from Create now says that this operating system is not supported I'll keep looking but I am definitely open to suggestions. Thanks, -myk
  14. I pulled the card, and all it says is Model: SB0460 SN: MASB0467641R02875D if that helps.. EDIT: Think I may have found it. Apparently SB0460 is X-fi Platinum. Downloading another driver now, hopefully the right one.
  15. Helped a friend upgrade his computer to Windows 7 today, and all is well with the exception of no sound. The computer is a Dell XPS710, and according to Dell, the card is some form of a Create Labs Soundblaster X-fi Xtreme, either Music or Gamer. I have tried the Vista 32-bit drivers and they wont even install. I have downloaded various things from Creative's website, but to no avail. Help? Thanks, -myk
  16. BLASPHEMY! How dare you defy the cult of Shuttleworth??! Nah, that's the beauty of having a multiple choice question.. Pick your own flavor and use whatever you like
  17. Not much to report really. Everything is working well for me, still using it on my laptop without issue. I don't really understand the reason for a lot of the changes in the UI. After reading their reasoning, it makes sense (in a way) but it sure is a drastic departure. Even with that said, I quickly adjusted and went on about my business using it. After a day or two, I hardly noticed the differences.
  18. You know, in many cases it could be said that these types of results are not that big of a deal, because its all a part of testing... However, with their scheduled release date being so close, yeah, its kind of a big deal That said, I still have it on my laptop and its still running great for me. And as for the customization, I have been able to get it pretty much the way I want it. While I still don't understand the logic of the immovable object that is the dock bar, it has become pretty much a non-issue after using it for a few hours. From what I have read, apparently Gnome 3 has ta
  19. Okay. I know that they don't use standard rdp ports, but we have no clue what ports may be filtered/blocked where she is remoting from. Unfortunately it seems the only way to test is to get a trusted contact in China to try different methods against a test system here and see what works best for them
  20. Port forwards are already established on the target network to facilitate RDP sessions. Are you suggesting that certain ports need to be configured where she is connectiing FROM? Please explain
  21. Got a client who goes to China fairly often, and she remotes into her desktop back in the states to do her emailing due to the need to access some rather large files stored on their server to work with her emails. When she is in China, she has issues with remoting in via RDP. Now, i understand that there are all kinds of unusual filters, blocks, etc, in China on the internet, but she continues to state that some of her companions there with other companies have no problems with their emails and she can't understand why she does. I explained that her companions are most likely either using a na
  22. Right, you can choose Ubuntu Classic at login for a default gnome 2.32 desktop. As for the bar, if you want to completely remove it, just use the ubuntu classic. Otherwise, after installing compiz configuration manager, you can adjust the unity bar from window dodge to autohide, and it will stay hidden, as in my screenshot, unless you move the cursor up to the top left corner. Of course, you can install Docky, or awn, or your dock of choice. Its is still rather customizable, however, I think Bruce's point is that they have a tendency to bury things deeper into the OS and change familiar conv
  23. I failed to menu, the global menu, while it takes a little getting used to unless you're familiar with OSX, is pretty nice. The new left-side dock bar seems kinda goofy. Granted, it works as well, but it just seems like it takes me a lot longer to move my mouse to the left side of the screen versus moving to the bottom, presumably because at 1366*768, you just have more horizontal space to cover. I use keyboard shortcuts and Gnome-do for just about everything anyway, so it isn't too big a deal.
  24. Well, its been just over 24 hours since I installed Ubuntu Natty Beta 1 on my laptop. It is different, thats for sure, but it has actually grown on me, and in a very short time, I have gotten use to the drastic changed Shutteworth deemed necessary for the desktop. While I can't claim to understand the logic behind a lot of the changes made, nor can I agree with making some of them "mandatory", I must admit the end result is more than usable. Not bad at all, actually. Any of you given it a thorough test drive yet? The only issues I have come across so far are problems with the ath9k dri
  25. I considered that, but everything I read suggested that would not help for this issue. I guess its worth a shot. I am about to run sfc /scannow and see if maybe its some corrupted DLLs that I missed..
