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.

since many isp's don't allow residential isp's to send out emails, i want to use my isp's native smtp server (smtp-server.hot.rr.com) to send out emails with sendmail; i don't know where/how to configure this, though....
i know that roadrunner and many other isp's are supposed to block outgoing on port 25, but i want to try nonetheless
hmm, didn't work; i successfully created the .cf file, but afaik, the roadrunner smtp server was not being used; when i try to email people at services like roadrunnner or aol, i get a mailer-daemon notice telling me that their services reject dynamic/residential IP e-mail transactions
web-based mail like yahoo and hotmail work perfectly, though
here is the mail i get when emailing roadrunner accounts:
(edited out: don't want people too many people to see this info just yet; the e-mail you will see if you try to send mail with a residential ip will be pretty distinct)
perhaps i'm looking at the wrong thing... it is the fact that i'm using my own smtp server that is causing problems, right?
