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.

This is my first attempt at running postfix, or any
email server for that matter. I have it installed and
running on redhat 7.3. Installed from source. I did
specify a few things so its not completely default.
The only thing I actually changed was where the
queue's are. I put them in /usr/postfix/queues. I have
since moved the queues around and updated such
information in main.cf but the mail never makes it to
the mail box. It is accepting mail and I turned on
soft bounce and I get the following message in the
"<firstname.lastname@example.org>: cannot access mailbox
/user/postfix/queues/matt for user matt. cannot create
file exclusively: No such file or directory".
Matt is the account name I'm trying to send the mail
to. gfccall.int is the domain. The mail servers name
is red_box. MX records are working correctly, like I
said I know mail is getting to its just not getting to
the users mail box. Do I need to have the queues in
any special location, or is there something else that
I found the problem late yesterday. I didn't specify the mail_spool_directory in my main.cf. The reason I moved the postfix queues around is because I partitions my HD like a newbie and so things are a little tight on space right now. Its just a test bed server so I'm going to re-install and do it right this time. :-)
