Some basic information like what the error message is might help too.

comment Why are many admins using 'Turn off Automatic Root Certificates Update' Policy?
@JoshuaShearer - since they don't understand, it's arguably moot as they won't know if what they already have is correct or not... In many small-medium sized businesses the 'admin' is "good with computers" because they have the latest shiny iThings rather than a genuine professional.

comment Why are many admins using 'Turn off Automatic Root Certificates Update' Policy?
@Muhimbi - I don't have anything relevant to the question, but "How to obtain/install the windows trusted root certificates" sounds like an excellent question in it's own right. IMHO the solution you offer in your KB article (to import the GlobalSign certificate) is the best solution since it has the least impact.

comment Why is RAID 0 classed as RAID when it's not redundant?
@Zack - because the rest of the acronym fits (array of inexpensive disks) and the use of acronyms frequently grow beyond their designed intent when it is appropriate. Take HTTP, it is in the same boat, as it is rarely used to transport hypertext, but also json, video, audio, graphics... nobody would go "zomg!!! that's not hypertext I need find a different protocol."

comment How do I install the JRE on a Windows server without Oracle adware?
Also worth looking at is Chocolatey.org which is command line/powershell based and based on NuGet.

comment If a Windows shop moves “everything” to the cloud, does it still need Active Directory?
If it's purely about licencing cost then OpenLDAP would satisfy your needs but the cost of maintenance / time would probably outstrip the cost of licencing.

comment Removing an IP address from the Spamhaus blacklist
I can't think that Comcast would have knowingly been ok with you sending mail from a dynamic ip. That would suggests that while you thought you were sending mail via comcast that you may not be. spamhaus.org/faq/section/Spamhaus%20PBL#165 has the info, I'd suggest a new SO question giving details of what mail server software you use and ask how to check if it's forwarding outbound mail to comcast's smarthost.

comment Removing an IP address from the Spamhaus blacklist
@JackHumphries - Your presence on the PBL is not because you or anyone else did something bad. You basically have 2 options 1) get a fixed IP and then ask your ISP to remove that from the PBL if they haven't by default. 2) reconfigure your server to forward outbound mail via your ISP. the latter is generally the better option unless you have a good reason not to do so.
