I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

If you only want to receive messages sent internally, then you only need to set up an internal MX record so that your mail servers know where to deliver messages sent to the domain you select.

+1 as you mentioned how to check for SPF related headers. This has been the most frequent cause mail sent via my mailserver ending up in the spam folder.

Nice digging! Would it be necessary to do the same procedure for subdirectories of tftpboot?

comment Windows Network Load Balancing on ESX Cluster with Dell PowerConnect stacks
Dell are getting back to me with recommended config to get NLB working with their kit - it seems the documentation does exist, but it is buried on Dell's site. Will share resolution if I get it.

comment Windows Network Load Balancing on ESX Cluster with Dell PowerConnect stacks
I also noticed that under a very small load, the problems with NLB do not occur (e.g. I set my hosts file to point our intranet urls at the NLB address, and I don't see the problem - but when everyone goes to the sharepoint servers via the NLB address, things are very slow)
