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 can't figure out how to do this, I have no experience with sendmail, it's configured from guides, etc.
Basically, sendmail doesnt work, I can start it as a daemon, but I can send mail to local users or external addresses..
The os is RH 7.3, sendmail version... umm not sure how to get that, i've tried sendmail -v, -V, --Version and --version. I know it's a recent version because I updated it to fix the security vunerability.. im sorry im just useless at this, and it's pissing me off.
What user were you running sendmail as? It sounds to me like sendmail it trying to write temporary files to a location that the user it's running as isn't able to write to. Can you see what user sendmail is running as?
Thanks for trying anyway, just one more question..
I've got sendmail working, but now when I try to run it as a daemon, with the command: /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q10m it runs for about 30s to 1m then just stops... is there a log or something that sendmail writes to, that I could look at to see whats up? I've tried appending >/root/mailerror (A file I created) to the command, but the file just stays blank.
