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 am setting up a Linux server and would like some advice on which options to choose.
Amongst other things I would like it to be a mail server which allows users to relay their mail with the sufficient authentication and I would also like to use POP3 which would also allow for easy integration for example with a webmail CGI interface perhaps.
At the moment, I am trying to decide which SMTP daemon to use but having trouble finding out exactly what they do without having to read the documents and learn them inside out first.
I would like something simple that would allow me to use aliases with some form of regular expression.
I am very concerned about using system users for email, I think this is just retarded for my setup. I would like a system with it's own set of separate user credentials.
For aliases I would like something that when a user is created doesn't do the retarded thing of making a default alias user@domain but has none.
Also I would like something that I can dictate where an anonomous sender can send to, point aliases to multiple users (perhaps through groups) and be able to use something forexample like alias Orakio*@domain to make all mail with the username begining with mine go to my account.
I also have multiple domains and want to be able to put domains in the aliases or match expressions.
Anyway the important thing is that I don't want to user system users.
