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.

ok all i want is a mail server to work thru http, well i have that part down (http://underscore.no-ip.com/mail) with apache/php and squirell mail....ive gone thru 3 imap server, binc, uw, and cyrus....NONE WORK...well they work i just dont kno how to add users....anyone have a link to a good imap/squirellmail guide or just an imap guide? thanks.
i think its with creating the MAILDIRs for the user becuase ive created endless accounts...and they all work for ftp and for ssh but none for imap...but yea imap is working fine, i just cant get into it
now you can read the mail you sent with this command as the user
or you can use this as root
mail -u username
now that mail is working you can test imap like this
telnet localhost imap
telnet localhost 143
Connected to localhost.localdomain (127.0.0.1).
Escape character is '^]'.

now if you still can't access it from another computer and you are sure dns is working, the hosts file is correct, or you are using the ip address in your mail client setup for imap server, I would make sure that port 143 is open.
Now that we have this going I would suggest using secure imap for remote connections. Never allow imap over the internet or you risk your passwords getting seen.
