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.

Relaying, let's say you relay mail for debian.org then I can connect to your SMTP server and send mail to debian.org, your smtp server accepts my mail (since it's configured to relay for debian.org) and sends it to the MX record of debian.org
It includes a lot of possible features, yet it's not optimized. I will do that next week. I support SMTP AUTH, relaying based on fingerprint of client certificates, RBL, sender address restriction, etc.
