most of the big emails giants will block email that has a generic host name. even thow you have a domain name the host name will return what every the host name of the box comcast gave you. Have them set up a Reverse DNS entry and moslike problem solved

i setup email servers for clients all the time and its a big problem

Comment Re:66MHz? Nice for you Rockefellers (Score 0) 197

I was building a lot of machines back then since there was profit in them. But...
Any I had a DX33 that I ran at 50mhz and it was faster than my friends DX2-66. I sold a guy a Pentium 60 and my dx50 was indeed faster than it. Not a lot but it was faster.
My 50 was so much faster than my friends 66 that there use to be this thing called 3DBench back in the day. any way with an ISA ET4000 and his VLB something or another that was a much faster card we would run about the same FPS.

Mine however could start WindowsNT 3.1 almost 40 secs faster with the same drives and memory.

Its not bad hardware. Not sure core I7s would keep up with it. Not under a heavily thread server load. Single thread performance is going be a bit slow.

Find a SATA Card that will work in it toss some new drives in it and move on.
Video who knows on that its a server just hope for 80col display and everything else is a bonus.

wow are you delusional Its unlikely any of the add ons sold to you by HP were even tested by HP. The most HP probably did was review the sticker that was placed on them. I have not seen a HP machine in years that actually had any HP parts in it. Even there servers.
