When users try and use the Mimecast for Outlook Add-in they login and get Application Disabled

  1. Make sure this is ticked
  2. Restart Outlook then try again
  3. Sometimes Mimecast caches Authentication Profiles locally in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Mimecast\msw.s3db , Delete this file with Outlook closed and try again

Recently a user found that an email with an Attachment when Files into iManage/Worksite did not show the “Attachment” icon . e.g the below email actually had an attachment

More research shows that anything filed using the “ThinClient” , which is users Dragging and Dropping emails into iManage using Desksite instead of using the the EMM Toolbar

Has this problem. The workaround is to use Outlook to File Items instead of Desksite

 A user whos laptop was joined to Azure AD was suddenly not being able to connect to Teams due to caa70004 error and Onedrive was bringing up 0x8004de40. WebApp worked fine , password had not been reset.

Rejoining the PC Azure AD didn’t resolve , and that Windows Profile could not join to any other Microsoft Account. Signing into the PC with a Local Username and password it could open and sign into Microsoft Apps

Our organization whitelists the 2fa prompt on trusted IP’s , so we changed the machine to connect to a non trusted IP 4g Hot Spot , which allowed the user to enter in the 2fa code and re-sign the Authentication Token

Do they use Auto-Mapped mailboxes?

 Had this issue with a number of staff here directly after migration from 2010 to 2016


$mailboxes = Get-MailboxPermission -Identity * -User <username> | Select -ExpandProperty Identity

Foreach($mailbox in $mailboxes){Remove-MailboxPermission -Identity $mailbox -user <username> -AccessRights fullaccess -Confirm:$False}

Foreach($mailbox in $mailboxes){Add-MailboxPermission -Identity $mailbox -User <username> -AccessRights fullaccess -AutoMapping $false -Confirm:$False}

Wait a few mins then see if the user can open Outlook.

I have been using this plugin to https://wordpress.org/plugins/pastacode/

highlight some of my programming. I write a bit in Powershell however this is not a supported markup. This is what to add to your functions file of your theme to add another library

/** pastcode plugin */
add_filter( 'pastacode_langs', '_pastacode_langs' );
function _pastacode_langs( $langs ) {
	$langs['powershell'] = 'Powershell';
	return $langs;

add_filter( 'pastacode_tinymcevars', '_pastacode_tinymcevars' );
function _pastacode_tinymcevars( $pvars ) {
			'libs'      => array('powershell'),
			'mode'      => 'application/x-powershell',

	return $pvars;

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'mytheme_scripts');

function mytheme_scripts() {
  wp_dequeue_script( 'prismjs' );
  wp_deregister_script( 'prismjs' );
  wp_enqueue_script( 'prismjs',  get_template_directory_uri().'/js/prism.js', false,PASTACODE_VERSION, true );


You will also need to create a js folder and upload the new .js library from https://codemirror.net/mode/ and prism.js

Vmware KB:


The PSOD is because of a race between reset and data path. There are two issues here:

Tx queue xmit and completion path ran into a race

The above race caused queue stuck and uplink reset, which ran into the PSOD.

Identified thanks to these legends in the vmware reddit:



Fixed in later driver release:

Bug Fixes:


– Fixed intermittent TX hang due to race condition between start and stop of TX queue.

– Fixed duplicate nic reset due to race condition between uplink reset and watchdog threads.

Check the user is connecting to Exchange via MAPI , I had a few setups where users were set to Active Sync instead

In this case, the solution was to run both commands on the exchange server:

Set-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory “SERVER\Autodiscover (Default Web Site)” -WSSecurityAuthentication $True

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -identity “EWS (default web site)” -WSSecurityAuthentication $true

This two command solved my problem
