Exchange 2007 Mailbox Quotas

Received a “your mailbox is almost full” message sent by Exchange 2007. Please reduce your mailbox size. Delete any items you don’t need from your mailbox and empty your Deleted Items folder.
Mailbox quota was already set via Exchange Management Console, but had no effect on warnings issued. Also, mailbox was almost 3GB at the time and not the stated 1948MB out of 2048MB from the warning.
Fix was applied to Exchange 2007 via the Exchange Management Shell.

Ultra VNC and the remote support tool

The great thing about UltrVNC is that it lets me set up a d/l executable that is executed by the end user and therefore, bypasses any firewall port forwarding settings on the client end.  THe server end needs PORT 5900 forwarded to the machine running “Ultra VNC Viewer (Listen Mode)”.
The full Download for UVNC is here: http://www.uvnc.com/download/index.html
And the app that makes all of my remote support magic happen is Ultra VNC Single Click: http://www.uvnc.com/addons/singleclick.html
