Try copying (not moving) this file to another directory; if you're
successful, delete the original file, then move the copied file back.

If the copy isn't successful, it's likely that your disk is dying -
make a backup at OS level, and restore it to a new disk.

Don't worry about .msi and .exe files - you can download those. What
you want are the files with messages, which are stored in .TBB files,
and maybe their indexes in .TBN files (but those can be rebuilt).

If you ever created a backup from within The Bat, those are stored in
.TBK files.

Try switching from The Bat's internal implementation to Microsoft
CryptoAPI - that way TB will use Windows certificate store, which gets
regular updates instead of relying on it's own (which might be
out-of-date, especially if you have an older version of TB).

You can switch that in Options -> S/MIME and TLS…

I said that your disk may have problems, and if you can't copy the TBB
file from Windows, this pretty much confirms it - you most likely have
a failing hard drive, and you should take a full backup immediately.

You can also try to run hard drive diagnostic tool from the

relocate bad sectors (this usually results in some data loss, but you
can copy the files that got stuck afterwards).

Try selecting just the problematic folder. In my experience, the

The ISP's servers probably allow sending mail without authentication
when you're connecting to the from inside ISP's network. Try enabling
SMTP authentication for the server (same username and password as for
receiving e-mail), to see if that'll allow you to send from other
networks (you may also have to enable STARTTLS or TLS connection; with
STARTTLS also try port 587 if 25 doesn't work).

Your antivirus is doing a MITM attack on the connection, which is why

Something is very wrong if TB has account files inside Program Files -
that location is read-only for non-admin processes (which The Bat is),
which is why you're having problems. I suggest you create a full
backup (from within TB), then start anew restoring from said backup
(which should place account files inside your user profile folder).

Port 587 is submission, and it uses either no encryption, or STARTTLS

always uses SSL or TLS.

Like I said, Windows 8.1 pretends to be Windows 8 unless the program

a newer Windows version than the highest one they're marked as being

The line is part of the normal TLS handshake, and usually wouldn't

512bit RSA is insecure (even 1024bit RSA has been phased out), and
nobody issues end-entity certificates that are valid for more than 5

No,  should always be escaped in HTML - URLs are no exception. The
HTML parser sees fooamp;bar=baz and knows that the URL has to be
foobar=baz.  on it's own is illegal in HTML, however since way too
many people incorrectly assume that they can use  without escaping

 Something to hide parameters, configuration items, etc from the

Times of Windows 9x and it's fragile registry are long in the past. I
haven't seen registry corruption (that wasn't a direct result of
hardware failure) on Windows 2000 or newer. If everything that's
currently reading and writing the registry would use separate files
instead, your computer'd work either much slower (because everybody
would be flushing those minuscule changes in small files all the
time), or configuration file corruption would be an everyday
occurrence.

And while this isn't really important for home users, without Registry
you also lose the ability to control programs from a central location
(which is very important in corporate networks - you don't want the
admin to visit every machine, or write a separate script for every
program).

 IMHO, the registry is the worst thing about Windows.  I can live with
 everything else, but the registry is the one thing that breaks windows
 more often than I can count.

Really? In my experience, by far the most often cause of Windows
breakage is various spyware, followed by dying hard drives, bad
drivers and bad RAM (but these three together don't account for even
half of the spyware cases). I don't remember when I last saw registry
corruption, and there's a lot of computers I deal with.

On Thursday, February 3, 2011, 16:35:38, Jonathan Bayer wrote:

 You may work in a corporate environment, but half the world is not
 corporate.  I include small businesses in that.

What's small business for you? We mostly deal with small businesses
(3-30 computers, most under 10).

 Configuration files are not written to that often, so your comment
 about flushing misuscule changes is irrelevent.

 I'd rather have a single conf file corrupted rather than the entire
 registry corrupted.

Get Process Monitor and let it capture events for 10 seconds, then
filter everything but Reg* events. You'll see that there are 50-100
registry operations done every second on average.

 However, I don't get your idea that conf or ini file corruption would
 be an everyday occurrance.  If the registry doesn't get corrupted that
 often, why would individual files get corrupted any more frequently?

Simple: Registry is a database, with a journal. If a write gets
interrupted, Windows will almost always be able to restore it to a
consistent state. Most programs that use custom config files just edit
that file in place, and if that gets interrupted, it will often leave
you with empty file, or a file that has half of the contents missing.

 One _major_ advantage to separate conf/ini files is that it can be
 much easier to migrate a software package from one system to another.

And a major disadvantage is that if the program lets you run multiple
copies of itself, it'll need to have some kind of config file locking
implemented.

 And why is it difficult to control programs from a central location
 with separate files?  If all the conf files are stored in a single
 directory (such as /etc on Unix/Linux), I don't see any difference.
 You can consider the individual files as a database, with each table
 stored in a separate file, if you like.

Consider this very simple scenario: you have a terminal server. Both
internal users and external users work on it. You want to let internal
users have unlimited internet access, but want to allow external users
only access specific pages on your intranet. This is very simple to do
with group policies in Windows, which control Registry.

 Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fanatic about Linux vs. Windows.  I use
 Windows every day, even though my main job currently is a Linux
 administrator.  Windows is, at present, the best OS for a desktop,
 although several Linux distributions are catching up.  Linux, on the
 other hand, is IMHO better at servers than Windows.  I do recommend
 Windows when it is necessary and appropriate, and recommend Linux the
 same way

I administer both, and while Linux certainly is sufficient for some
tasks, there's a lot it's lacking when it comes to desktop use
(specifically when you need to remotely administer groups of machines
for desktop users).

Reply template ignored in a folder

2010-07-07 Thread Jernej Simončič
I've got one folder where The Bat seems to completely ignore the Reply
template - it seems to use account default reply template. I tried
removing and re-adding the template, removing it completely, replacing
it with %BLANK and with some garbage, but any time I click Reply in
that folder, the default Reply template is used. I also tried
Maintenance centre with no success. Forward template works fine in
that folder.

Any ideas what's happening, and how could I get the reply template to
work for that specific folder? (this folder is a subfolder in common
folders)

Look for an e-mail titled The Bat! v4 Registration.

Alternatively, you'll have to load the Registry hive - you'll find it
in C:\Documents and Settings\username\ntuser.dat (or
C:\Users\username\ntuser.dat). To do this, run Registry Editor
(Start - Run - regedit.exe), click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then
select File - Load hive, find ntuser.dat, choose a name under which

IIRC, 4.0.38 is the last version that works with 3.x keys. You need to
buy an upgrade for 4.1.0 and newer (note that 4.1 also changes the

The message store has not been placed in Program Files by default for
several versions now (since only administrative users have permission
to write there, and in Vista and newer, even when logged in with
administrative privileges, the programs run with normal user
privileges by default).

 The above location contains a file called MESSAGES.TBB which I believe
 are the actual messages. There's also a file called MESSAGES.TBI whose
 function is a mystery to me. After the change in the message store
 format was instituted with 4.1, where are messages stored now?

TBB files contain the messages, and TBI are the indexes. With 4.1, TBI
files are replaced with TBN (one of the reasons for the change was to
allow for message bases exceeding 2GB, but IIRC, there were a few
other changes).

How fragmented are your message bases? When you have this many
