Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I didn't see the stats on this poll, but I voted for Exim
To be perfectly frank I had to toss up between Postfix and Exim and let the coin decide.
I do both so often that I really don't have preference anymore - I like them both the same I think What makes the difference for me are the value added goodies that I decide upon for any given client. For example, I wouldn't use Exim for OpenWebMail, but vmail-mysql is exim-centric.
As far as sendmail goes - I actually still do more installs that are sendmail based than both exim and postfix combined. Why? because that's what patrick has packaged slackware with by default and it's good stuff. I do a few customizations but that's about it.
Qmail is nice but I don't use it unless I'm specifically asked to set it up and I'm going to have to give Courier a look-see since I haven't run across it before - a new toy to play with
Wow, I fully expected to see qmail in the lead. I'm glad Postfix is in the lead though!
The first mail server I administered was a Sendmail box so I know how much of a pain it is to install and configure. Then I decided to look for a more efficient and secure MTA. I read a lot about how Postfix processed mail faster than qmail so I went with it. I've been using Postfix now for about a year and haven't looked back once.
