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 have just configure Redhat Linux 9, my apache webserver works fine, and i have just installed the Squirrelmail and send e-mails without problems. My question is, how can we receive e-mails from others?
Yes, I have registered our domain and its MX records. Before, I was using MS Windows 2000 Server for mail using Workgroupmail for Windows as our mail server, and it works fine. I used the same setting for my newly installed Linux box but I failed. I have just installed Firestater for our firewall and internet sharing then made smtp and pop3 ports open for communication.
Yes, I've configured our linux box to work as our internet gateway and as our mail server. I try to telnet port 25 of my server and found out that it was open for communication. NAT firewall was configured properly.
How could I test the server on where the e-mail was stuck? Log Files?
Distribution: OpenBSD 4.6, OS X 10.6.2, CentOS 4 & 5
Maxut and I both told you that the fastest way to figure out the problem is to post the domain name so we can check it. It's very hard to determine what the problem is if you don't give a complete description of your setup. "I've configured it to work as our mail server" is completely meaningless, because maybe you only think you set it up correctly but you really missed an important step? There's no way to know for sure unless you post exactly what you did, or you post your domain name so other people can help you.
Also, I'd advise you against posting profanity, even if it is partially obscured. You may wish to review the forum rules.
