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.

Regarding NSA, if they are interested in your data for whatever reason you can be pretty sure that they get your data, regardless which mail service you are using.

I went down this route before for my own domains and to be honest it was a pain to keep up with the various tools and configuration for MTA, Spamassassin, IMAP/POP3 server and new spam "recipies" etc.
Recently switched 60 users to Gmail from a previous Postfix/Dovecot/z-push platform and so far they are loving the multi-platform access (Outlook/Web/Mobile Device) and from an admin point of view we've much better control over mobile devices.
However, as with everything, "Your Experiences May Vary", so it's all down to personal preference.
