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.

Creating Icedove email account - what's going on?
I have Debian 7.7 and have just installed Icedove email client.
I want to create a free email address so I can have a new email account.
When I launch Icedove, I get a window saying 'Would you like a new email address?'
It then offers a search button for email addresses. Why? If I create an address it will need to be unique - so there's nothing for it to find.
Also, I input an email address I want and it seemed to be saying that the propietary host server (in this case gandi.net) wanted £4 ($6) for the account.
Can someone please say a little more about Icedove? Believe me, there is little to learn from Youtube and the internet.
Distribution: Cinnamon Mint 17.3 and 18 at present.
Thank you. I wanted to create a new email account.
If I understand what you're saying, you won't do this with an email client. You'd need to run an email server to create an email account. You usually get issued email addresses from your ISP or there is gmail from Google, also hotmail, Yahoo and other suppliers.
Setting up your own mailserver is probably a lot bigger deal, perhaps someone who has done this can advise if that's what you mean.
(Maybe it's not a big deal, I've had no reason to try it...yet!)
