If you are connected to a network using VPN and when you try to search network drives mapped to remote servers, window search do not display any results.
This usually happen when you do a search over a slow network like over VPN or over WAN in Windows server 2003 and Windows XP. The search gives you empty results, this happens even though the file you are searching is present on the network drive. The actual message you receive on search is
“Search is complete. There are no results to display.”
The cause of this problem is when you search network drives over slow link Windows incorrectly determines that the files or the folders you are searching are offline. And therefore windows exclude them from the search.

The Sender ID Framework is a protocol created to counter e-mail domain spoofing and to provide greater protection against phishing schemes by verifying an e-mail message’s sender.Domain spoofing refers to the use of someone else’s domain name when sending a message and is part of the larger problem of spoofing (the practice of forging the sender’s address on e-mail messages). Domain spoofing can also be used by malicious individuals in phishing scams, which try to lure consumers into divulging sensitive personal information by pretending the e-mail is from a trusted source, such as a consumer’s bank. Disclosure of such information can lead to identity theft and other online consumer fraud.
The Sender ID Framework is designed to verify that each e-mail message originates from the Internet domain from which it claims to come based on the sender’s server IP address. Eliminating domain spoofing will help legitimate senders protect their domain names and reputations, and help recipients more effectively identify and filter junk e-mail and phishing scams.
How Sender ID Works
Domain administrators publish Sender of Policy Framework (SPF) records in the Domain Name System (DNS) which identify authorized outbound e-mail servers. Receiving e-mail systems verify whether messages originate from properly authorized outbound e-mail servers. The following diagram illustrates the verification process.
The steps in the process are:
1.The sender transmits an e-mail message to the receiver.
2.The receiver’s inbound mail server receives the mail.
3.The inbound server checks which domain claims to have sent the message, and checks the DNS for the SPF record of that domain. The inbound server determines if the sending e-mail server’s IP address matches any of the IP addresses that are published in the SPF record.
4.If the IP addresses match, the mail is authenticated and delivered to the receiver. If the addresses do not match, the mail fails authentication and is not delivered.
