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.

Well, actually finding something like OE that checks your http mail is more of chore than it would seem. Not really good advice I know, but I would suggest switching to something that lets you check from an email client either via pop or similar. Yahoo doesn't anymore, so scratch that. Check out www.eudoramail.com That seems to be good for a while. Operamail used to let you, but they only allow for the premium accounts now (as with Yahoo and others). Use hotmail for spam and when you sign up for crap, use hotmail as your initial box. Give your family and friends your new email account address.
For my junk account I use www.HotPop.com it's free and they forward mail to the pop account of your choice.I can access both my @earthlink.net accounts and my HotPop account from Mozilla mail.You can also do this with Sylpheed.
