Server Reboot

Had to finally reboot our file server, it was the record winner of the office with about two years and a half uptime! Of course when I rebooted it at 5:00am I wasn't expecting any corrupt directories :-( grr so I got to drive in at 5:00 this morning!

Access-based enumeration! is awesome

Ok so I have been meaning to turn this feature on, bascially it only lets people see folders that they have access to! Very nice if you have a ton of folders inside a share! Get it here

So finished one half of the email server checker

I finished 1/2 the email checker, its extremely simple it just creates an email with a guid and sends through an external mail account, and then creates a file with the same guid. On the other side it pulls in messages from a different local mail account and compares the subject to the guid subject stored in the file. If it matches within the alloted time fram then it is assumed that the email server is recieving emails. Now I'm going to play with xmppy to send me an IM when the process fails.

Email server checker, or the email equivalent of ping

How come I can't find any software to check that an email server is working? I can find plenty of software that checks that SMTP is up, but I want a system that actually sends an email and then the remote box sends back a reciept that it has been recieved. Almost like the email equivalent of ping.
