Andrew MacNeill: W2K3, not SP1

I posted a comment to Andrew MacNeill – AKSEL Solutions asking if he had solved his problem with Windows Server 2003 Service PACK 1. He posts: The result of Windows 2003 SP1. “Well Ted, all I can say is I’m still running Windows 2003, but not SP1. Many people have offered suggestions and I’m reading other ideas but I’m staying away from Windows 2003 Service Pack 1. At least until I have nothing better to do with my weekend….”

“And to make matters worse, a bunch of my clients, who manage their own servers AND THOSE who have it hosted, experienced emails problems from Oct 31 – today. Coincidence? I’m not sure. While I wouldn’t blame Microsoft, some of my customers are immediately blaming their lack of server software on the big guy.”

They might be suffering from the recent Poisoning of Microsoft DNS Servers – this sounds like it could be a nasty one – or the new exploit to the WINS server patch issued last year. I noticed a real tapering off in email, ham and spam, in the last week. I wonder if something else is going on…
