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 am running SuSE 9.1, with KDE 3.3.2. I have run into a problem where KMail will not send any messages because of the error: "5.0.0 EHLO requires domain address." I have tried setting a domain address using the "domainname" command, and this sets the name correctly. However, I still get the error. When I restart my computer, the domainname disappears though? (That's kind of a side problem I guess).
Thank you for helping me make that connection. I had been wondering all along if it were a Kmail problem. I've tried about every option I know of to get KMail to send a specified domain, but to no avail. Any insights?
Well, I kind of found a work-around for the problem. After using my ISP's SMTP server for a long time, I ran into this problem. I have been working on it for quite sometime. I ended up using Sendmail on my local machine to forward all my emails to my ISP. Apparently, when I leave Sendmail to communicate with my ISP's SMTP server, it does alright. KMail just wasn't communicating properly. So now, I just have KMail forward to Sendmail, which then passes it along to my ISP. Do you see any problems with this setup?
