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've setup sendmail and can send and receive mail internally and externally.
But Dovecot just returns the error message: no inbox for user.
It's a remote server to me, so I'm mostly using Webmin, but with Putty where command line needed.

-ERR Unknown command.
+OK Logged in.
-ERR No INBOX for user.
No idea why the first USER command is rejected.
