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.

Distribution: openSuSE 42.1_64-KDE, Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17.2
I'm using the version coming with SuSE 9.0 pro (I think that's about the same -- at least it's not old).
Okay, I set up the connection, IMAP for receiving and SMTP for sending mail, as required by my provider. When I checked the first time for new mail, Kmail copied the folders from my provider and the "re" or subject matter of the mails in them. When I click on a mail it loads the body.
But: I want to be able to load the bodies (plural!) of selected mails (and sometimes also the attachments) for offline reading on my machine (I use a modem connection...). Thus I need a way to mark a selection of mails and to issue a "load them" command -- and the documentation has a roaring silence for that topic.
Same goes for deleting on the server of my provider (without reading the bodies of e.g. obvious advertising etc.): here I need a way to mark a selection of mails and to issue a "delete them now" command.
HOW do I do that? As I understand it, this should be the advantage of an IMAP connection. Any help or hints will be greatly appreciated .
Sending doesn't work at all, I'll have to test more to find out why the connections were refused there...
