Finding Stale Mailboxes in Meridian Mail

Sometimes when you have a large enterprise, and a old installation you lose track of mailboxes. Other times, people just stop using them, and leave, and never tell you they're gone.

Here's a quick way to print out a list of mailboxes that the system has marked "Stale"

Open up Meridian Mail and login.

  1. Select System Status and Maintenance
  2. Select System Event and Error Reports (SEERS)
  3. Select SEER Retrieval
  4. In SEER Class, put in 91, this is the only info you need to enter, unless you have more than one report. (Small Systems may have multiple reports)
  5. Either select show report, or Print it.
That's all there is too it. It will actually show you how many days it's been since someone logged into the mailbox.

Embed a Slideshow from Picasa Web / Google Plus

One of the great features of Picasa Web was that you could embed a Flash slideshow of your albums.

With the migration to Google Plus Photos, this disappeared. Here's a work around. Use the following link to get back to the original PicasaWeb site. https://picasaweb.google.com/ lh/myphotos?noredirect=1 Hopefully the embed button makes a re-appearance, or Google leaves the old page up forever. *******UPDATE******* One of the commenters below posted this website. http://www.slidemypics.com/ It seems to work pretty good!

WPAD does not resolve in DNS

At work, we're doing a POC (proof of concept) with a web-proxy, specifically Ironport Websecurity Appliance. Like most all proxies, you have to get the traffic from the client to the proxy. It supports transparent traffic redirection, but we're looking at using WPAD instead. However, when I created the WPAD DNS entry, it didn't resolve. C:\>ping wpad Ping request could not find host wpad. Please check the name and try again. C:\>nslookup wpad <DNSServer1> Server: <DNSServer1>.domain.net Address: <IPofDNSServer1> *** <DNSServer1>.domain.net can't find wpad: Non-existent domain This of course, is a big problem. It took a little investigating, but I found the cause. Windows Server 2008 introduced a new feature, called "Global Query Block list", which prevents some arbitrary machine from registering the DNS name of WPAD. This is a good security feature, as it prevents someone from just joining your network, and setting himsel
