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.

Thank God I stumbled onto your website. I have installed Postfix because my ISP keeps screwing up with my mail server. I have my own domain name registration but whenever I try and start Postfix from: /sbin/service postfix start I get an error msg which states that the service has FAILED.
The main.cf file is listed below. I've reloaded the file but I cannot start Postfix. WHAT I need to be able to do is for mail sent to my domain name to end up in my new server. Do I need to download IMAP also? If so, where do I get a copy from, what version?
Any help would be much appreciated. I have removed Sendmail usring rpm -e and moved the configuration files somewhere else.
with much thanks. JM

Within main.cf, I have specified my relayhost as my gateway/router ip addr. I am now guessing this is wrong because the log says "connection refused." What should this parameter be and how can I ensure that I am able to receive and send mail inside and out of my network?
