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.

for a few weeks i haven't been able to receive mail using both netscape and mozilla mail programs, I positive all the information has been entered in correctly. To test if it was the server i went to another win-box on a totally different network and used outlook successfully to receive mail from the server. The odd thing is that mail was working ok a few weeks ago. Can anyone suggest anything, i am sure that the information is correctly entered. Any clues?
Hmmm... Not to trick you into trying another mail client, but could you also give other mail clients a run, maybe kmail sylpheed and/or pine. The main reason I'm thinking this is because I've never used the NS or Moz mail clients, and since the browsers are twins, maybe the mail clients have the same flaws as well? Anyway, just more ideas since I've got no idea what's going on and I can't give you back your 0 replies status so I will try to help however I can
I tried giving Evolution a try, but that gave me a no rout to host error, It must be a configuration problem on my part some where, sinice i know the address is up. But i can't figure it out, I dont seem to have a rules defined in iptables.
Get a program called firestarter from www.freshmeat.net and use it to configure your iptables scripts. It's probably going to be the easiest route to ensure that is not where the problem is lying. Also, check your log files for info on errors from sending. They might hold a clue for you as well.
