comment Why am I getting these emails?
Also note that fambfmii address and many others that the emails are bounced to do not exist. I'm only seing these because I monitor the catchall mailbox that accepts emails for all inexistent addresses in my domain. Note also that email body does not contain anything so I'm not sure if the purpose of this really is to get someone to read the email bounce....

comment Why am I getting these emails?
Thank you vey much for this, I find your answer useful. As far as SPF goes, I did this because i was receiving an smtp warning or error from gmail smtp sever when any emails were sent to gmail from my domain. Adding spf and dkip stopped that. I removed spf for now and I'll monitor the situation to see how it affects both things - this spam and acceptance of my domain emails by gmail.

@sebix I've added to the question information on my setup. It does not look to me like it's an open relay as it has never been a problem. Also I do not believe that this spam enter internet at my system, as I can't find the original emails (not the bounces) in the logs

comment Why am I getting these emails?
Actually I don't use gmail as relay. I put this spf line only because people reported that it helped them in a similar situation, and it did also help me. I have deleted it now but it will take some time to propagate to see what effect it had (like if it stopped this spam and if it stopped gmail from receiving emails from my domain again)

comment How do I install the JRE on a Windows server without Oracle adware?
@JasonGoemaat I think you can also uncheck it during installing updates. I'm not advocating adware - it totally sucks, and it sucks that it's included with jre, but I installed countless updates, unchecked and never had problems.

comment Is there a way to provide user-specific passwords for Wi-Fi?
@IanRingrose what I do is base the security around specific MAC addresses of people's devices, not around the people themselves. They all have the same wifi password, but it is only useful if their MAC is whitelisted. Also all the usage and security rules are based on these MACs. It is not secure enough for business setting, since MAC addresses can be changed and relatively easy spoofed, but in home setting it's a low risk, since people are unlikely to hunt for each other MAC addresses and spoof them and a random MAC address is not useful.

comment Is it possible to extract last month's values from a MySQL server and build a new database from those values?
Of course the dev databases would be intentionally small with only the subset of data required to test whatever the developers are working on. For purposes such as performance testing a separate, (bigger) instance would be used.

comment Is it possible to extract last month's values from a MySQL server and build a new database from those values?
In a shop where I work, every developer has their own copy of the database so nobody steps on other people toes. This worked out very well for us. We have scripts to rebuild the database from scratch and populate it with the test data required for the development. Single database has often been problematic with people working on some database areas breaking it for other people. And then everyone halts while a big db is being restored. So having a single database is NOT a superior solution. (TBH neither is. It is situational.)

comment Check that a given user has a given priviledge
@EvanAnderson Exactly! When I was asked to estimate how long it was going to take me, it seemed to be a straightforward task. And after a couple of days of googling and trying different things... nothing. Currently my plan is to pinvoke GetTokenInformation with TokenPrivileges token information class Of course I need to figure out first how to get hold of the token itself. This route seems the most promising at the moment.
