View Headers and Source from Outlook .msg file – via Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/05/23

Sometimes people give you .msg files saved from Outlook instead of forwarding those mails by e-mail.

Opening a .msg file requires Outlook.

You don’t need to bind Outlook to an e-mail account for this (so you can skip those steps when asked the first time Outlook opens). An Office installation that includes Outlook suffices.

After opening the message:

  1. Open the toolbar if it’s not open yet
  2. Under “Move” choose “Actions” -> “Other Actions”
  3. Then choose either “Message Header” or “View Source”

For some HTML messages, “View Source” is not available. I’m not yet sure why.

“Unable to connect to the MKS”: the port 902 problem.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/05/23

A message like “Unable to connect to the MKS” usually does not mean you have reached the maximum of 10 connections for a VM.

Usually it means there is some network issue, like a firewall or router misconfiguration.

Port 902 is used (both TCP and UDP) to provide (among others, hence MKS) console connections.

The default MKS port is 902, and you cannot change it.

For vCenter it is even worse as you cannot even go through NAT:

About the only solution is to tunnel through SSH: VMWare vSphere Client Remote Access via SSH Tunnel and redirect ports 443, 902 and 903.
