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.

A friend - a unix/Solaris man - changed jobs recently and set up a linux system to do his work on. He continues to email me using Netscape mail. I asked him why. He said its the only client he has found that runs under linux that will let him leave his personal mail on on his pop3 server account, but allow him to delete it when he deletes it locally.
The reason he wants to do this is he has several accounts he reads from several locations. He wants to be able to see all 'active mail' from any location, yet he wants to be able to delete junk once he's dealt with it and not have it continue to show up at the other locations. Netscape's client will allow him to do that, he says.
So, I experimented with several linux mail clients. KMail, for example, will allow me to leave mail on the server, but it continues to be left there after I delete the local copy I've opened and read. Ximian works exactly the same way. Balsa ditto.
Does anyone know of a mail client that will do what he's looking for short of running the entire Netscape Communicator engine?
even mozilla/netscape(> v6.x) has a option for deleting pop3 mails when deleted locally. but it does not work. I'd really like to see this feature working on the a linux pop3 mail client, its a pain to keep my local mailbox and the remote pop3 mailbox synched if i delete messages locally.
