OOO and NDR Security Risk Solutions


I'd like to enable NDRs and external OOO messages, which have been
disabled by the previous IT Manager, but I am aware of the potential
security risks. Can someone please recommend security tools which help
prevent some of these risks?

I know that guns kill people.  Can someone recommend a gun that doesn't kill 
people as much?

Exchange 2000 modifies NDR's from outside
Hello, whenever a NDR generated by remote servers comes to our exchange server, exchange modifies the NDR, including attached message. As a result, we can't safely detect where the problem started and what server generated the NDR. Is there any possibility to set up exchange not to modify the NDR, and to show it exactly as it came in? (except Received: headers, which of course should be added).

Addin Security
We've developed a couple of addins that are working great with Dynamics GP. Is there anyway we can set up security on the addins? We already tried NTFS on the actual .dll files themselves, but that generates an error message upon logging in that we'd rather not see. Thanks, Steven V. There are ways where you can implant security on your addins and it depends how you would like your security to run. In your addins, Dynamics globals are available to you and from there you can check for the value of 'User ID' of globals to know who is currently logon in Dynamics and from the...

How to call Web Service Securely
I love Web Apps in ASP.NET 2.0 because you can easily deny users access to pages by role or user. But for desktop client to webservice methods, I am not sure what to do.... I am looking for the simplest and safest method or pattern to have my Desktop client be able to call a web services securely. Assume my webservice proxy has 15 methods. By securely, I want the Client desktop app to pass some kind of simple username/password token -- something - but not in plain text - so that acces to the web call either immediately succeeds or fails.

NDR's for existing users

Terminal services: relaxed versus full security to support VBA customizations
VBA automation in Dynamics completely fails when permission compatibility (in terminal services configuration settings) is set to Full. It's not clear to me whether this disables VBA automation entirely on W2K3 terminal servers, or whether it merely restricts Dynamics users from access to registry areas or files that are needed for VBA automation. Toggling this setting back to "Relaxed Security" immediately (well, after reboot) fixes the problem for Dynamics users. It's been difficult to find documentation that explains how to avoid Relaxed security and successfully run Dyn...

Notes Security
Hello, Our client is using contacts (and contact related notes) across all business units and as such everyone has organization wide read access for notes. However, for some other entities, we want to restrict access, that is, the user should only have read access to entity records and related notes only where the user is the owner. Right now, it seems like even if we limit access to the entity read to self, the users can still read all the notes related to the entity. We would welcome your thoughts around some best practices and methods to handle this. Thanks! Unfortunately as you...

All, Our Out of Office replies would only work for internal email, and external recipients would not get the notifications. I solved the problem by enabling the setting in Exchange, and also in Active Directory, but I wanted to find out if any of you would know how settings like that would change? Is it possible a service-pack could have changed them at some point, or did it absolutely have to be human-caused? Thanks! -P I believe OOF replies to the internet are disabled by default. Of course, this depends upon which version of exchange was installed. :) "TwistedPair" &...

Using Distribution Groups or Mail-enabled Security Groups
We've upgraded from Exchange 5.5 w/SP4 and Distribution Lists to a new Exchange 2003 w/SP1 server, and were wondering if there is any advantage or disadvantage as to what type of Group to use to replace our Distribution Lists? Our ADS Domain is Windows 2003, if that makes any difference. Thanks. Exchange 5.5 Distribution Lists map to AD/Exchange 200x Distribution Groups. It's a good idea to use those in most cases since they're not security principals. Not a good idea to reveal security group memberships to users/anonymous senders, imo. -- Bharat Suneja MCSE, MCT www....

NDR Attack
Our SBS2003 hard disk filled up due to Exchange log files. I have managed to reclaim a lot of space by cleaning away log files that are not required (following various MS articles). I now find the cause is a Reverse NDR attack on our email address. We only use POP3 for incoming email so not an open relay (Port 25 is blocked at the firewall, cannot telnet in at all). Even so, I have ensured all open relay measures have been taken (for future use). Everytime Exchange starts up, the SMTP Queue starts filling up with thousands of messages again! Help! I have turned on Recipient Filterin...

I need a place to dislpay the current position int he wave and top allow the user to type in a new position to go to. I could not find a single example of an edit box in a toolbar. But I did find the combobox example. however, none of them actually showed me a proper way to get the control's messages to my view class.

Wired NDR
Hi All, One of my users sent a message on 3/9/05 to an external address, the recipient received the message and replied to the user on 3/10/05. Today 3/14/05 the original sender received an NDR (See below, I changed names) about the first message. We are running Exchange 2003 with SP1 and this is the first time I have heard of this happening. It just happened to be our CEO and a member of our board of directors so needless to say this has moved to the hot pile. Any suggestions or explanations would be helpfull.
