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'm trying to send e-mail from my machine to my internet mail address (using a php script or just in pine). I was getting this error message:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
(reason: 553 5.1.8 <email@example.com>... Domain of sender address firstname.lastname@example.org does
..because uranium.hero.com is not a real name in anyone's DNS - it's just what I call my computer.
So I tried setting up a masquerade through webmin to "hero.com" which is an actual machine name (and also where my internet mail account resides), but now I'm not getting any sort of bounce back and no mail in my internet account, however, my mail log now shows this:

My host (hero.com) does not allow other people to use its SMTP server, so I can't relay through it. Is there a moderately easy solution for an e-mail neophyte like myself?
FYI: I just chose "uranium.hero.com" as a FQDN - my machine and hero.com are not related in any way.
If you have an external email address then you can set this
up as a relay address. Also masquerade all external email
as coming from this address. Disable DNS lookup since many
email servers don't reply to this request.
