Question about Mozilla Firefox

2 Answers

Address Not Found Firefox can't find the server at us.mc516.mail.yahoo.com. The browser could not find the host server for the provided address. * Did you make a mistake when typing the domain? (e.g. "ww.mozilla.org" instead of "www.mozilla.org") * Are you certain this domain address exists? Its registration may have expired. * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check your network connection and DNS server settings. * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

    Frequently when I attempt to go to Internet addresses that I believe to be valid (links provided by Google searches) I get the error message "Address Not Found". This is a relatively new problem and may have started after a recent update to Firefox 3.0.5. From the number of forum references (Google search on Firefox Address Not found) this appears to be a widespread problem.

How to Send Anonymous Emails


bbe4318.jpg
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 <billg@microsoft.com>
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
http://yoursite.x10hosting.com/sendmail.php
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…

Trying to set up outlook but dont know incoming and outgoing servers how do i find out


The incoming and outgoing mail servers are going to be the ones used by your ISP(internet service provider:Time Warner,Verizon,ect) if you use their mail service or a web based service(Yahoo,MSN,ect). So you can first start with your actual e-mail address. If your e-mail address is joeschmo@yahoo.com then you e-mail provider is yahoo. You will then need to goto the website for your e-mail provider and get the incoming and outgoing e-mail server info from them. You will also need your username and password for your e-mail account. Then set up a new e-mail account on outlook express using the information. Also some mail servers require authentication so you might need to configure those settings on outlook exprerss also.

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 CrystalTech.com but your ISP is DodgyISP.com and you try to send emails from your domain to NicePeople@yahoo.usa. Neither your domain nor Yahoo.usa are hosted by DodgyISP.com, 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 DodgyISP.com and ask them to enter your domain name as an allowed sender.

Unable to load yahoo page ..


Sounds like a dns problem.<br><br>press "widows key (Has a flag printed on it)  r" then type "cmd" then type "ping www.yahoo.com"<br><br> it should give you something like this<br><br>Pinging www.yahoo-ht3.akadns.net [209.191.93.52] with 32 bytes of data:<br><br> Reply from 209.191.93.52: bytes=32 time=51ms TTL=49 <br>Reply from 209.191.93.52: bytes=32 time=53ms TTL=49 <br>Reply from 209.191.93.52: bytes=32 time=58ms TTL=49 <br>Reply from 209.191.93.52: bytes=32 time=51ms TTL=49 <br><br>
Ping statistics for 209.191.93.52:<br>     Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),<br> Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:<br>     Minimum = 51ms, Maximum = 58ms, Average = 53ms<br>
<br><br> you need the 209.191.93.52 number.  (May be different on yours.) Now take that number and put it whrere you usually type www.yahoo.com in firefox.  If it works its a dns issue and it is usually the service providers end.  If it doesnt work then reinstall firefox.

DNS timeout error


Fundenmentals guys.

Type into the browser http://217.146.186.51

This happens to be yahoo ip address. If this works then you have issues with the DNS settings on your network. If not see item 2 below;

Check that via start/Run/cmd - this should take you to a black and white text screen.

type 'ipconfig /all' this will show the connections.
If you have more than one. It's wise to only have one currently connected.

Either Wireless or Ethernet. At the bottom of the list of numbers.

You should see 'DNS Servers' entry. Type 'PING ' then the IP address.

Normally 192.168.0.1 (Might be different so check!), If you get no reply then that's your answer.

Try changing the DNS settings via 'My Network Places/ View My Networks/' Highlight the Connected Network.

Then right click, select Propertise.

Then under 'This connection uses the following items' scroll down to the TCP/IP.

Select it. Then select 'Propertise' At the bottom. Obtain DNS server address.

Select Use the following. Then type the following Public DNS IP address into the first box. 66.93.87.2 and then the one that you found using IPCONFIG /ALL in the second.

This then will lookup the IP address for the URL's that you type into the browser. By asking the Public DNS server first. This is then unrelated to the way that you talk to the internet. (DSL/Corp etc)

Select 'OK' until you return to the Desktop. Open the browser and it should work. But the window system may need a restart for the settings to take effect. Depends on what OS is running.

Item 2:

If it does not then you have issues with you actual internet connection.

start/Run/cmd - this should take you to a black and white text screen.

Type 'tracert 217.146.186.51' then hit enter.

This will then show the route that the system is taking to get to the website.

If it shows the yahoo.com at the end your fine. Otherwise, it will pinpoint where the system is stopping.

If, it works then the issue is with the browser. Here is the Firefox address to download a better browser! - type into browser http://66.93.87.2 download!

Now, for those sorry chaps that stop, without reaching the end!!

Type in 'ipconfig /all' again. Check that the IP address you recieved is not 169.254.x.x as this indicates that the device that provides the IP number is having a bad day. Reset this device if you are able. Turn it off and Wait! Best option is make a cup of tea. Then turn the device back on. Let it have at least the time it takes you to drink your just made HOT tea before you retype 'IPCONFIG /ALL' We know you end users!

If you are using a wireless connection that states it's connected. Check that you have put WEP or Security key in correctly. It made state that you are connected. But running the IPCONFIG at command prompt normally says different.



Hope you all are now better.
