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.

My laptop is connected to a Microsoft Exchange Server, and I have managed to get everything working except for the email. I have tried Evolution, which came with Fedora Core 3, but there is no option for it there, and I have searched this site, of which I found a similar thread where one person replied saying he did not know of any. I have also searched Google in vain.
If you do know of a good email client for Linux which supports Microsoft Exchange Servers, please can you let me know? Thanks in advance,
Can i set an account in Thunderbird to a microsoft exchange server instead of pop or smtp?
Only if the Exchange server is configured to support POP3 or IMAP incoming mail services. Exchange does not do that by default, it uses Microsoft's proprietary mail protocol. You will want to check with your mail administrator to see if he/she has enabled one of the two supported protocols.
Outgoing is still handled by SMTP in Exchange, I believe.
Originally posted by J_K9 Oh, right. Thanks Artanicus...but surely there must be at least one Linux email client which supports Exchange Servers?
Well, as exchanfe natively uses a proprietary protocol, it would have to be reverse enginereed in order to simulate the behaviour of Entourage and similar apps.. I guess no one wants to put enerhy in it when we allready have POP3.. Imho its better to stick to the POP based system and not support proprietary mail systems.. Id say your best bet is to beg the server admin to switch the server over to normal pop behaviour like the quoted text suggests..
well, dont mention linux in the talk, just talk about adhering to standards, and that your productivity will be better if the mailserver uses a standard pop protocol.. (; It shouldnt be too much of a hassle if the server doesnt serve too many people.. Most likely itll be able to server pop alongside the native.. well, or not.. hard to guess..
lol I'll have a go but there are about 1500 people accessing email from the server so I don't know if this will be possible! Thanks for those expert tips ;-) I'll send him an email and see what he says. Thanks!
