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.

Am running windows xp connected to a cable isp and ubuntu 8.04 running alongside with a crossover cable.The browser works ok on both machines,printer working on both machines.Mail works ok in and out. on the win machine but I can only send mail on the ubuntu machine but no incoming .
p.s.The ip address of the linux machine shows up ok in the preferences on the router.
Port 110 is ok.SorryI was not very clear with the question.The windows machine is receiving mail that should be going though to the ubuntu machine.In other words when I send a test message from the ubuntu machine back to itself it goes to the windows machine instead.Hope this makes sense.
What do you mean by sending mail to itself? Where are you sending mail to and how are you collecting it? Are you saying that both boxes are mail severs, or do you send mai lto your ISP and Windows happens to pick it up first?
Your post doesn't really say a lot, so you need to give a much clearer picture if you want any help

When I need to test mail connections at any time after a format or whatever,I send a test message from the machine and address it to the same machine and it returns to the same machine.In this instance the windows machine is picking up the return and not sending it through to the linux machine.
