comment Exim rejecting a specific e-mail address prefix
Unfortunately, this is a third-party server on a big host that I'm trying to communicate with. I don't have any control over their configs, but it's a little bizarre that such an e-mail address would return "unrecognized command" instead of an "invalid address" or something along those lines. It's just bizarre all around.

As an aside, how could quarantining be bad practice? It looks like standard practice to me, not to mention spam filters always have false positives.

comment Exim rejecting a specific e-mail address prefix
Thanks. It's not my mail setup, so I'll have to try and coach them through it, but that's a good place to start at least. I'd be surprised if the spam filtering happened at this level though. Seems more likely that it would simply accept the spam e-mails and quarantine them.

comment IIS FTP daylight savings timestamps are off
Ran into this issue yet again. NTFS saves all timestamps in UTC, so that's not the problem. I actually wrote a program to save all the UTC timestamps on the server to a file, then update all the local file timestamps from that saved file, but viewing over FTP still returns the wrong timestamp when DST is in effect. The problem really is with IIS FTP which seems to be incorrectly applying DST offsets.

The problem isn't explorer so much, it's the timestamp in the file system attributes. The sync tool I'm using is WinSCP and it's reading the same time as explorer, ie. off by one hour compared to FTP. I found a setting in WinSCP to manually adjust the time offset of remote timestamps, so I got around it temporarily, but it's going to come up next DST change, so I was hoping for something more permanent. Oh well.

Eastern time (UTC-5). In the image, I'm browsing the FTP from the FTP server. Since it's all on the same machine, I don't think locale settings would matter. Whatever locale-specific transformation IIS is performing, the FTP client would use the same locale and reverse it no?

See: higherlogics.net/personal/timestamps.png That's browsing the same directory on FTP host via FTP and Windows explorer. You can clearly see the DST problem. Even assuming IIS is returning the timestamp in UTC, it's clearly not adjusting the timestamp which was saved in DST, so it would still be off by an hour. How do I fix this?
