MovableType 3.2 on Windows 2003

MovableType 3.2 has five beta versions, I tested some on my windows 2000 windows XP machines. They all fine.
When Six Apart release the final version 3.2, I installed it immediately on my Windows 2000. It run smoothly on it. Tests included brand new install and upgrade from Movable Type 3.17.
On August 26, 2005, I upload all files into my Windows Server 2003. Modified setting fies according to the Docs. It failed.
Gave me the following errors:

CGI Error
The specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers.

After 4 days research and a lot of tests and some modifications for the native Movable Type 3.2 files. I got the solution.

No Mail Relay

I saw a lot of spamers use my email server to send their Junk mails.
To stop it. I have to set up my IMail server to No Mail Relay.
Previously I wrote Stop third party email relay
Now, I stop the third party mail relay totally.
No Mail Relay
With this option, IMail will not relay mail through the server unless the sending user authenticates. On the SMTP Security tab, make sure that ‘Disable SMTP “AUTH” reporting’ is NOT selected. (In version 8 and higher, this option is on the SMTP Advanced tab).
No Mail Relay is the best solution for customers who are unable to choose ‘Relay mail for Addresses’ because their users connect using dynamic IP Addresses.
After setup in the server side, inform all email users to config their email client software.
How to Enable SMTP Authentication in Eudora:
1.) Go to Tools -> Internet Options.
2.) Select the “Sending Mail” category from the list on the left.
Make sure the “Allow Authentication” option is checked.
3.) Click OK
4.) Restart Eudora for these changes to take effect.
How to Enable SMTP Authentication in Outlook Express:

3.) Select “Servers” Tab.
4.) Under “Outgoing mail Server”, check option “My server requires Authentication”.
5.) Click OK, then close the “internet accounts”.

Build RAID 1

I used my old 60GB harddisk, which replaced by previously mentioned 160GB new disk, to made a RAID1 array with another 40GB harddisk. Actual capacity I can use is 40GB. 20GB is wasted.
Following is the technical explaination of RAID Level 1
Common Name(s): RAID 1; RAID 1 with Duplexing.
Technique(s) Used: Mirroring or Duplexing
Description: RAID 1 is usually implemented as mirroring; a drive has its data duplicated on two different drives using either a hardware RAID controller or software (generally via the operating system). If either drive fails, the other continues to function as a single drive until the failed drive is replaced. Conceptually simple, RAID 1 is popular for those who require fault tolerance and don’t need top-notch read performance. A variant of RAID 1 is duplexing, which duplicates the controller card as well as the drive, providing tolerance against failures of either a drive or a controller. It is much less commonly seen than straight mirroring.

files are duplicated on both drives. (The files are the same as
those in the RAID 0 illustration, except that to save space I have
reduced the scale here so one vertical pixel represents 2 kiB.)
