Help please - Syntax for Qpopper on Linux


I have trawled the net to find help for this to no avail.
I have a dedicated Linux Redhat Server which was set up by a friend who has now long gone. My technical ability on a scale of 10 is probably about 2 so please go easy with the jargon.
I need to change things such as deleting and setting up email accounts checking server performance. What resources its using and where its using them, changing passwords etc etc.
My problem is that I don't know the syntax for the command line. I am using Putty for the connection and selecting "Raw" at Port 110. This gets me online to the server. Qpopper is the email programme.
Can anyone tell me where I can find documentation which I can learn from and refer to for the correct sytnax?

I have seen this but I'm afraid it doesn't really help. What I need is lots of examples of command line syntax for Linux using Raw Putty. Something simple. The truth is I probably shouldn't be running this server on my own but I don't really have any choice just now.

sorry, to be no more help, maybe you'll find something you can use here.

were you able to get things going ? if so it would be helpful if you posted what steps you took to get "up and running" so to speak so anyone else searching for answers could use this thread as a guide.

I used the "Info" command on the server, this brought up a whole set of pages with instructions how to use the help and a pretty comprehensive list of syntax. So I found what I wanted right there on my own server. Anyway, its a start. I still need some instruction how to delete a mailbox and how to set up a new one but I guess I'll come to that. When I do I'll post here. Meantime
