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.

suppose I am using mozilla thunderbird as a Mail User Agent(MUA) or for example take any one, which sends/recieves(smtp/pop3) emails from a particular mail server.
Now i want to write an application, which will receive emails before reaching to MUA, i want to edit that mail and then want to send it to the MUA. simillarly while sending emails from MUA it should come to my application and then my application should send it to the server.
How can i do that?
I found one way. as follows:
step 1: first my application will connect to the two ports on which email works(port 110 and 25).
step 2: i will change the MUA server settings as a localhost, so whenever MUA send anything my application will get the data and it will send it to the server(as i know the ip of server)
step 3: when server sends any thing, my application will receive it and then send to the MUA.
I havn't tried it yet. Is it a efficient way? or is there any other way possible?
The drawback i can see in this is:
The coding is application base and i want is more system base.
