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 just recently got a new cell phone (nokia 3650) and am already geeking the crap out of it. :-)
anyway... the camera is real cool and being able to send pictures to people is awesome. but what i want to do is be able to email them to a specific account and then have a perl script i wrote auto-generate thumbnails and pretty much photo album it and make available online.
pretty much the only thing standing in my way is actually executing the perl script when the email is received (through sendmail on a slack8 box). i'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions of how to execute a perl script whenever an email is received?
everything's working fine as far as sendmail's concerned. aliases is being used correctly in sendmail.cf and what have you. i've made changes to the config file many times before, so i'm reasonably sure everything is working how it's supposed to be. with the minor exception, of course, of this problem.
what would really help is if i could track down the point of failure. the mail seems to go through fine, but obviously the script isn't being executed.
