Bogus Godaddy Domain Account Upgrade Confirmation Email


godaddy-account-upgrade-confirmation

I received an email today with a subject of “GoDaddy Domain Account Upgrade Confirmation“, see the captured email looks like. I am not aware of GoDaddy’s upgrade confirmation so I checked the link provided to the email. The link behind “Click here Upgrade account” and call to action image “Go to My Account” are linked to an IP Address 115.47.19.5:3389. I checked the IP Address owner, it is assigned in China. I don’t know about you, but GoDaddy is based in USA. The 3389 after the colon, is a port number use for remote access. Actually, this is the default port number for most Windows Remote Server or Terminal Server.
Here’s the IP Address (115.47.19.5) Owner information:

Office365 - This resource doesn't accept meetings longer than 1440 minutes

When you create a meeting schedule for number of days, you will see an error  "This resource doesn't accept meetings longer than 1440 minutes". By default the mailbox or room was set for a maximum limit of 1440 minutes.

Here's how you can disable this limit.
Login to the Office 365 Administration ConsoleIn Microsoft Office 365 Exchange, click on Manage.In Manage My Orgnization, click the drop down arrow, and click on Select on Another User. This will prompt you to select the mailbox or room to manage.Select a Mailbox or Room, click OK.In Option, click on Settings.In Scheduling Options, un-check the "Limit meeting duration", then click on Save. That's all. You can now schedule a meeting or reserve a room for number of days.

Hope this help you.
