“This message could not be sent” Error [0x80070005-00000000-00000000] in Outlook 2010

Filed under: Exchange 2013 — Rahul Patel @ 6:25 pm

Recently i have created one user email address on my Exchange server 2013., now this user need to have other user’s mailbox access also in his profile.

I have configured his outlook profile successfully and then add new profile for other user as well. Now when i start outlook , select 2nd user profile, login to his mailbox and i tried to send one mail for testing purpose, mail was bounce back with below error :

  This message could not be sent. Try sending the message again later, or contact your network administrator.
                       Error is [0x80070005-00000000-00000000]

How Strange !  I had not have this type of an error in past. Then i had tried to remove outlook profile , recreate it but same issue arrived again !

I had Google it found below KB from Microsoft

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2918777

As per KB, This issue may occur if the address book in Outlook isn’t updated.

Update the address book in Outlook. To do this, follow these steps.

– On the Office ribbon, click the Send/Receive tab, click the down arrow next to Send/Receive Groups, and then click Download Address Book.

-In the Offline Address Book dialog box, make sure that the Download changes since last Send/Receive check box is selected and that Offline Global Address List is selected as the address book, and then click OK.

After updating outlook address book , Error was gone 🙂

Configure the auto reply message for specified user mailbox

Filed under: Exchange Server — Rahul Patel @ 10:32 am

Yesterday my management asked me that is there any way to configure auto reply message for one user. I had some doubt for this as we have exchange 2003 standard edition server, but after googling , i have found Yes it is Possible in Exchange 2003 server !!

Please follow this steps for configuring Auto Reply message:

The first thing you have to do is make sure the “Allow automatic Replies” box is ticked within the “Internet Message Formats” properties.

1. Open your Exchange System Manager
2. Expand your “global Settings Folder”
3. Right Click on “Internet Message Formats”
4. Select the “Advanced” tab
5. Tick the box “Allow automatic Replies”
6. Click “ok” to save the settings.
Now login to the mail account you want to send automatic reply from and set up a rule.
1. Start a new blank rule
2. select ” check messages when they arrive, then click “Next”
3. Don’t select anything, just click “next”
4. You should receive a message saying something like ” this will be applied to all message received, continue Yes / No”
5. click “Yes”
6. Select “Have Server reply using a specific message”
7. create the message then finish.

NOTE: Outlook does not have to be running for the Rules Wizard to automatically reply with a specific message. Also, you can configure Outlook to periodically check for new messages, and to hang up when it has completed sending and receiving messages.

Microsoft Releases Out-of-Band Patch For IE Vulnerability

Filed under: Internet Explorer,Micorosoft Windows,Microsoft Internet Explorer — Rahul Patel @ 2:33 am

Released as a MSI package, the patch is described as a workaround that leverages the Windows application compatibility toolkit to make a small change to MSHTML.DLL in memory every time the DLL is loaded by Internet Explorer. Microsoft previously recommended IE users to take this step manually, while the patch automates the task. Microsoft provides an installation guide for the workaround as well as information to uninstall the patch again.

Microsoft stressed that the workaround is only effective if all recent security updates for IE have been installed as well.

The company confirmed existing attacks that exploit the vulnerability. However, Microsoft said that “only 32-bit versions of Internet Explorer” are targeted and attacks “rely on third-party browser plugins to either perform efficient heap-spray in memory and/or to bypass the built-in mitigations of Windows Vista and 7 such as DEP and ASLR.” However, users can further reduce the risk of a successful attack by updating their Java version from Java 6 to 7.

SBS 2008 DNS stops working for .uk, .eu and some other TLDs outside USA

Filed under: SBS 2008 — Rahul Patel @ 1:45 pm

In SBS 2008, when first installed or rebooted, DNS queries succeed, but after a period of about 1 day users report that they are unable to access some web sites. On inspection, it may be noticed that the inaccessible web sites are in the .uk and .eu Top Level Domains (TLDs) or certain other TLDs that are outside of the USA.

If left for several days, the problem may appear to resolve itself then re-occur after another day or so.

If the DNS server service is restarted, or the DNS cache on the server is cleared, then the problem is temporarily resolved but re-occurs after a day or so.

The cause of this problem is that in EU countries (and certain other TLDs outside the USA), nameserver records are typically cached for more than 1 day. SBS2008 has a cap on the maximum time that it will allow nameserver records to be cached, which defaults to 1 day. This default works fine in the USA but When the .uk and .eu records become stale, they are not deleted from the cache but are no longer returned as valid records. Therefore, they effectively prevent DNS lookups in those TLDs from succeeding until the records expire and are deleted from teh cache, or the DNS Server service is restarted.

The fix is to increase the maximum Time To Live (TTL) setting in the DNS server so that it recognises records older than 1 day. Experience has shown that setting the value to 4 days is usually enough, but the maximum setting is 30 days.

Solution

For a permanent work around, the MaxCacheTTL value needs to be changed to a value larger than the TLD TTL (Default value is 1 day, maximum value is 30 days). On SBS2008 there is no negative impact since this is the TTL for the cache of Resource Records. This is just the maximum value that it will be stored on DNS server. If the actual TTL is shorter, the shorter value will be used.

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
2. Locate the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DNS\Parameters
3.On the Edit menu, click New, click DWORD (32-bit) Value , and then add the following value:

Value: MaxCacheTTL
Data Type: DWORD
Data value: 0x69780 (432000 in decimal = 5 days)

4.Click OK .
5. Quit Registry Editor.
6. Restart the DNS server.

Shadow a Terminal Server Session Without Prompt for Approval

Filed under: Server 2003,Tips n Tricks — Rahul Patel @ 3:15 pm

Using windows 2003 and want to gain session access to another users session. Perhaps the person you are asking for shadow permission has an issue on his desktop and cannot figure it out,

To “Shadow” you have to know the session id of the user’s session that you want to view and or take over. Right click on your taskbar and select task manager. Go to Users and pick the users name and the session number should be located to the left of the name.
Shadow 0 and on the users session it will pop up a dialog box asking the other user for permission for you to access the session.

Of course this can be denied from the other user. Frustrating? 😦

To shadow any other session, without a prompt, you would use the RDP-TCP Properties dialog, on the Remote Control tab, and clear the require users permission box.

To remote control the console (session 0) without a prompt for approval:

1. On the Terminal Services server, Start –> Run –>Gpedit.msc –> OK.

2. Navigate through Computer Configuration–> Administrative templates –> Windows Components –> Terminal Services.

3. Right-click Remote Control Settings and press Properties.

4. Select the Enabled option.

5. Select Full Control without user’s permission, under Options.

6. Press OK.

7. Exit the Group Policy Editor.

8. To force this local policy to update now, open a CMD prompt, type gpupdate /force, and press Enter.

When you establish a Remote Desktop session, you can connect to the console and remote control it:

1. Open a CMD prompt.

2. Type Shadow 0 and press Enter.

The user will NOT be prompted for permission.

Well this can be exploited and used in many wrong ways. So just be careful and use it wisely… 🙂
