.bad File Extension

Developer: Microsoft Corporation
File type: Exchange Badmail File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .bad. Files with the file extension .bad can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .bad files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .bad file?

A BAD file is an Exchange Badmail File developed and released by Microsoft. It usually entails email messages that Microsoft Exchange Server failed to deliver to prospective recipients mentioned in the email address. The return email is composed of the sender’s email address, recipients email address, the body of the message and subject name. It also explains the reason and circumstances why the email was not delivered and returned by the server. Returned files or BAD files are normally stored in a folder called Badmail together with .BDR and .BDP files. This can be viewed by simply transferring the said file to the Pickup folder. One of the reasons why an email ends up as failed mail is when there is problem with the recipients email address. The server might have had problems locating the email address or for the very reason that the mentioned email address does not exist or has ceased to exist. A particular point noticed in this situation is error on the part of the sender of the message, which is an incorrect email address typed in the recipient text field.

how to open a .bad file?

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is a collaborative software from Microsoft Corporation that runs on the Windows Server operating system. Its can function as a mail server, a contact manager, and a calendaring software. Exchange Server 2010 has new features that enhance its efficiency. CCR, SCC, LCR, and site functionality SCR has been replaced by DAG (Data Availability Groups) to provide a higher level of availability for database (as opposed to server level availability). As a result database copies may be removed or added without requiring major reconfiguration of the server. Another feature is the use of Client Access Server (CAS) arrays. Multiple Client Access Servers are contained in an array, with a single identification in an Active Directory. Thus, faster client connection is effected by the single name endpoint. In previous editions of the Microsoft Exchange Server, a clustered mailbox server cannot be combined with another role. In Exchange Server 2010 users can combine the Mailbox Server Role with the Client Access Server and Hub Transport roles.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .bad files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .bad. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
