SMTP routing – a dynamic IP solution

SMTProutes = SMTP connectors In my case it would be unlikely that I’d be running Exchange, for any length of time, on a dynamic IP. But, for testing, that’s what I’m doing at the moment (from a computer at work). Anyway, outgoing mail had problems on a dynamic IP – just like Linux – if …


Back up your Windows server – great for newbies like me!

Well, I’ve learned some – but I’ve got a long way to go. One thing that I’ve learned it that my System Restore “Add On” on Server 2003 is worthless (it’s broken); once the active directory is installed it doesn’t work anymore. So, I’ve developed a new approach – and I’m diggin’ it! As someone …

htaccess password generator

This opens in a new tab/window, by the way, and will generate a .htaccess password – what a surprise, huh? And – just for the record – PHP5 does not like this script. With “display errors on”, in php.ini, it indicates a couple of errors – but it works fine. Why? I dunno. Password Generator
