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.

First, let me apologize for taking up space in the LQ forums. I think it's important enough to do it, but if a moderator feels differently, please remove this thread(you won't offend me).
I know this has nothing to do with Linux, but I just want to get the word out on something! Some of you may already know that AOL has implemented a new spam blocking policy. Well, this new policy has MAJOR flaws and I decided to see if there was something that little old me could do about it. I implore you all to visit my online petition at http://www.bartlett-family.net/aol.php to see what I am talking about. It explains what AOL is doing and what I plan to do about it. Please take the time, it will only be a moment out of your day and will help many! Thanks all!
Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
I can appreciate you guys closing the other threads, but I don't see how this post is spam. Anyway, that's a philosophical argument not really worth getting into. We'll just agree to disagree. You think I could circumvent this problem by reconfiguring sendmail (my MTA)? I have tried everything I could think of, but from the error message I got, and the conversations I had with AOL and Comcast, I don't think this is a problem I can solve. However, I am more than willing to try it out. you mention editing the sendmail.cf file (actually editing the sendmail.mc file). What exactly would I do to get around this problem? Could you elaborate? If this problem CAN be solved by me, I am definitely open to doing it! Thanks!
I did not say it's not a valid problem, it is. I have the same problem.
So does anyone who runs a mail server from a private ip address and wants to send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org UNLESS they use a relay server
that is the solution, above
relay mail through your isp (their server)
(how to fix) postfix
(in the file)
(how to fix) sendmail
(in the file)
smtp.comcast.net is just an example (use your isp mail server instead)
The thing is we are nothing to AOL, they do not care. Just fix it and move on.

you know, this reminds me of a story. see there is a good side to aol, now this info here is about four months old but probably still valid. you see there is a place in aol, i cant remeber where but any operator can tell you, that you do a survey and you get a discount on you aol bill. who cares you ask?
well you can do like three surveys a month right? and the amount of the discount just happens to cover the cost of a high speed acount( the one you get if you already have dsl or cable or whatever. who cares still you say?
well with that acount you get like 12 megs of web space with no bandwidth limit. that can really come in handy. images are good for storing there and such. or just a web page( if you use the address in the source code you dont have to have the banners)
so thats it 12 megs free, unlimited bandwidth
