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.

After a lot of mad struggling with Postfix I was up2dating (RH v7.2) my system and in the process manage to restore a few Sendmail files. So now I can send mail outside of my box, which is GREAT! But it now transpires that it is Sendmail which is doing the work and nothing to do with my painstaking efforts with Postfix's main.cf.
How can I disable Sendmail and have Postfix as default mailer for ingoing and outgoing, internal and external mail? thx. JM :confused
D. I have gone to the folder you specified. There is S80sendmail there but no Postfix file. When I do a ./S80sendmail stop, the server does stop. But as there is no Postfix file there, does this mean that I have installed it incorrectly?
Thanks D. I have checked all this and found that Postfix is loaded in all the correct places. I have sorted out my MX records, also with my ISP. But I when I send mail from webmail to my domain and vice versa I see nothing. If I specify and external SMTP host then I can send mail outside, but when I hit reply, the mail is sent but it does not end up in my mail box; although I do not get a "not sent msg" at the webclient end which would suggest that the mail is getting delivered. How do I access it though?
At the "machine client" end for sending mail locally, how do I "bind" an internal login name, to an external email addr, do they have to be the same?
