Question about Symantec Gateway Security Appliance 440 (10278186)

1 Answer

Blocking email Since we've install the symantec 440 we've had trouble with internal email. Our email is hosted off site. A user will send an email it will not be receive by someone one within our network. Are there rules or settings that I need to have in place for this to work properly. It seems the main trouble is that the email is not getting to the external email server.

Virus that blockes antivirus updates and antivirus sites

Try updating your antivirus software after booting your computer in safe mode (during boot up press F8 and choose safe mode). In case that this didn't work go to one of this sites:
You will download and save "combofix". After that, run combofix without any other programs running in the background & follow the prompts.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
Combofix should never take more that 20 minutes including the reboot if malware is detected.
Note that combofix in not an antivirus program; it's just a virus cleaner tool. After using combofix you must install an antivirus program.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

How to Send Anonymous Emails

Most of us are very curious to know a method to send anonymous emails to our friends for fun. But the question is, is it possible to send anonymous emails in spite of the advanced spam filtering technology adopted by email service provides like Gmail, Yahoo etc? The answer is YES, it is still possible to bypass their spam filters and send anonymous emails to your friends. For example, you can send an email to your friend with the following sender details.
From: Bill Gates <>
The art of sending this kind emails is known as Email Spoofing. In my previous post on How to Send Fake Email I insisted on using your own SMTP server to send anonymous emails. This method used to work successfully in the past, but today it has a very low success rate since Gmail and Yahoo(all major email service providers) blocks the emails that are sent directly from a PC. In this post I have come up with a new way to send anonymous emails (spoofed emails) that has 100% success rate. If you have to successfully send an anonymous email or spoofed email, you should send it using a relay server.
What is a Relay Server?
In simple words, a relay server is an SMTP Server that is trusted by Google or Yahoo as an authorised sender of the email. So, when you send an email using a relay server, the email service providers like Yahoo and Gmail blindly accept the emails and deliver it to the inbox of the recipient. If the SMTP server is not authorised, Google and Yahoo will reject all the emails sent from this SMTP server. This is the reason for which using our own SMTP server to send emails fail.
So What’s Next?
Now all we have to do is, find a trusted SMTP server to Send Spoofed Emails. Usually all the emails that are sent from web hosting providers are trusted and authorised. So, you have to find a free web hosting provider that allows you to send emails. But, most of the free Web Hosts disable the Mail feature and do not allow the users to send emails. This is done just to avoid spamming. However all the paid hosting plans allow you to send any number of emails. Once you find a hosting service that allows to send emails from their servers, it’s just a cakewalk to send anonymous emails. All we have to do is just modify the email headers to insert the spoofed From address field into it.
I have created a PHP script that allows you to send emails from any name and email address of your choice. The script can be found here.
Anonymous Email Sender Script
Here is a step-by-step procedure to setup your own Anonymous Email Sender Script
1. Goto X10 Hosting and register a new account.
2. Download my Anonymous Email Sender Script (sendmail.rar).
3. Login to your FreeWebHostingArea Account and click on File Manager.
4. Upload the sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG files to the server.
5. Set permissions for sendmail.php, pngimg.php and bg1.PNG to 777.
6. Now type the following URL
NOTE: yoursite must be substituted by the name of the subdomain that you have chosen during the registration process.
7. Use the script to send Anonymous Emails. Enjoy!!!
Tell me whether it worked or not. Please pass your comments…

In my system some of the sites are not open

Dear i have send some information for solve your problem.
i hope you have satisfied my help.

Fix 1: Check your Windows HOSTS file - Make sure there’s no entry in the hosts file that maps the website’s address to localhost or an incorrect IP address like – it is a possibility if you have imported some third-party hosts file.
cmd /k notepad c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Fix 2: Find Faults in the Pipeline – Paypal website may be up and running but it is possible that the real problem lies with a router that is between you and the computer hosting the Paypal website. Do a traceroute and check for messages like “Request Timed Out” – they will help you find the location of the breakdown.
Type the following command in the Run Window:
cmd /k tracert – remember to replace Paypal with address of the website that is unreachable.
Fix 3: Clear DNS Cache – The DNS cache keeps a record of sites that you have recently visited on your computer. If that gets corrupted, you may have issues opening sites that were previously accessible without problems.
Type cmd /k ipconfig /displaydns in the Run window to see the cache entries. If that unreachable website is listed in the cache, type cmd /k ipconfig /flushdns to clear the cache.
Fix 4: Website May Be Blocked – The chances are rare but it is possible that access to some particular website may be have been restricted by the Office firewall. To test this, send an email to with the problematic website URL in the subject field. If the website is up, you will get a text copy of the web page in an email message.
Fix 5: Suspend the Anti-Virus and Firewall – If you are running an external software firewall or anti-virus program (like Norton, ZoneAlarm, etc), exit and restart the web browser. Is the problem solved now ?
When nothing works, open and reboot the modem. If that fails, restart your computer and as a final step, call your ISP support.

SMPT Error 551- I am an Australian travelling in China and contiually get the above error message when trying to send emails. Is there a simple fix?

SMTP Error 551 : If neither the sending mail address nor the recipient’s address are locally hosted by the server, then the ISP’s servers may refuse to relay the message on. Some ISPs implement this restriction to thwart spammers. In our view, this is a lazy and incompetent method of fighting spam as most of the time it does nothing but inconvenience no-one other than the ISP’s vast majority of considerate and law abiding users. In our experience this usually goes hand in hand with barely competent technical support. At the time of writing, 14-Sep-2008, a typical culprit for this is BT, British Telecom, in the UK. The way in which it manifests itself is as follows : you have a domain that is hosted by but your ISP is and you try to send emails from your domain to NicePeople@yahoo.usa. Neither your domain nor Yahoo.usa are hosted by, as a result your email is not accepted by DodgyISP’s mail servers and your mail server is returned an SMTP Error 551. To correct the problem you have to call and ask them to enter your domain name as an allowed sender.

Winfax client could not connect to host computer

This error occurs for many different reasons, mainly it could be a firewall or anti-virus blocking ports that WinFax uses for fax sharing, or it could be Service Pack 2 or 3 that was installed that causes these ports to be blocked.

It also could be that you installed version 10.04 overtop an older version like 10.02, which will cause problems.

Here is where you can start,
