comment periodic error dialog (default Email app related) on Windows 10, appears to be CortanaMapiHelper, should I be concerned?
yes. it definitely seems to be Cortana. I get this when I'm not doing anything related to Cortana though. Which is why it seemed strange to me that it would be, in the background accessing Email features.

interesting; makes sense that this would get rid of the dialog. I'm curious though what exactly its trying to do and why its getting triggered.

comment Auto lock the screen for any user after specified period of inactivity on Windows 7
@FrankThomas, yes, the GPO is system scoped, but the part that is system scoped is just the part preventing you from changing the setting. You still have to go set the setting for every user account. Once you've done that, the setting will prevent it from changing. I was trying to avoid having to do something on each account and even with the GPO I would still have to.

@FrankThomas Thats a great link, and will prevent changes to the setting, but you'd still have to go set it (the screen lock thing) for each user. Once you've done that the link you shared will prevent changes. I'm looking for a global setting or tool which will, for all users, cause the screen to lock after a period of inactivity.

I'd like to avoid having to setup my own server -- I was hoping there was some automated way to test against one of the existing servers (speedtest.net for example).

I'm looking to get the same measurements speedtest.net gives but in an automated fashion I can run in the background periodically.
