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.

I have added a new user account in redhat and wanted to access the mail box of that account at root. After some googling, I figured that in order to achieve that, I need to use telnet. The command to do it is:
telnet mail.domain.ext 110
what should I specify for the mail.domain.ext portion? localhost?
why are you trying to do this?? this kind of thing is really only for low level debugging... either way that server name is meant to be the server you want to connect to. the one with the pop3 server on it.
er, you really don't seem to be asking the right kind of questions here... if this was a relevant thing for you to be doing, you would already know this sort of thing... it would (presumably) your your pop3 server that you set up yourself.
you probably just want to log in as that user and check email locally, or just look at /var/spool/mail/username
mate, you're just getting really confused now... i don't think you want to be doing any of this at all. you're trying to achieve some goal or other, and have read and misunderstood an unrelated document. leave it and go back to the actual situation you have...
