Are unexpected connections unexpected?
I've just done some re-configuration, and all seems to be working well.
But one thing:
I only have 4 active users, and hardly any mail. I almost never seen any
active connections, and they are transient.
But today I have a connection to mail mmt com au, 20 minutes!and it
And a connection from 218 73 212 5
I've just run a relay test from www abuse net, I'm not on open relay.
Anything I should be worried about? Any suggestions?
It could be that other server is doing something funny, like not closing
the connection or responding slowly or not at ...unexpected conversion trouble
I wanted to open an Excel file I hadn't been working on for a while, an
Excel couldn't do it.
After some investigations, I found that even if the file still had th

I open it in notepad, I can see at the end some words that look like

I'm running Exchange 5.5. My backup program (Backup Exec) doesn't backup
these two files because I believe they are active. Is there a way I can
back these files up? Any help is appreciated.
You need to buy the BackupExec Exchange agent - this will allow you to do a
proper online backup (which doesn't involve Exchange server downtime, and
also purges committed transaction logs).
Make sure you select the Exchange stores - not the mailbox level (that's
useless for disaster recovery and takes up lots of tape & time).

Sometime back we had a problem with price changes on back orders. What would
happen is this, we would be out of an item so the order was placed in the
WAIT batch. Then, when the item was made, the batch number would be changed
to move it to a daily batch, then released. On some items - not all - when
the batch number was changed, the price would change from the customer's
price level price to the LIST price. When checking the Price List, the
customer's price level price is still there, but that is not what is now on

I have recently been moving a lot of mailboxes around in Exchange 2003. My
understanding is that every time you move a mailbox, it grows in size, is
that correct? That being the case, would I just use one of the offline
defrag utilities to reduce the size of the databases back down? Let me
To be more precise, the mailbox store we are moving mailboxes to will grow.
What we also need to concern ourselves with is the growth of transaction
logs on both the source and destination servers. For every GB of data we
move, we will generate roughly the same amoun...FRX 6.0 "unexpected error; quitting"
When i create a new windows profile on a PC that already has FRX 6.0, login
as that new user and try to run FRx, I get the follwoing error, "unexpected

Does anyone know how to fix this...?
Thanks for your FRx question. FRx 6.0 is no longer supported. I recommend
upgrading to FRx 6.5 or FRx 6.7. However, the unexpected error quitting

I never close down with IE open, so why does it keep asking to restore my
last session? I have Windows 7, recently purchased, so no control over IE8.
If I delete browsing history, I can use it, and open it over and over, but
when I boot the machine, it won't allow me to open IE8 to my home page.
Closing it with the task bar doesn't help - it just goes into a wait state
the next time I try to open it.

The database is in an unexpected state; Microsoft Access

The database has been converted from a prior version of
Microsoft Access by using the DAO CompactDatabase method

We have some code like this

The WITH statement should remove the data that cannot be converted to int

decided to do the join first and then remove the bad data. The problem with
this is that we get an error when casting to int. The really silly thing is
that if we do this:

then we get no problems. The other really silly thing is that this h...Access Closes Unexpectantly
I have a database that is on a Citrix server. There is only one user for the
