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.

I've been banging my head against the wall for a while now setting up qmail on a box running Fedoracore 1. I followed the instructions at lifewithqmail exactly, and I'm at the point now where I can be certain that the server is up and running and that user accounts have been setup properly.
My only problem at this point is with password authentication.
I'm using checkpassword-pam. As I understand it, in my run script under /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-pop3d/, I need to point this app to a module that lets it know what authentication method to use; in my case it should be pop. Under my /etc/pam.d/ directory I have a module called pop, but no module called qmail-pop3d. I've searched for this module and I can't find it.
My questions are as follows:
1.) Can anybody get me the qmail-pop3d module, or tell me where to find it?
2.) Am I even on the right track, thinking that this is the source of my problems? I can telnet into port 110, only to have my user/password authentication fail.
I'd appreciate any advice you guys might have, as this has been driving me nuts.
I'm having the same problem with QMail 1.05, Fedora Core 2.
There is a discrepancy between the entries in the run script at /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-pop3d/run.
Dave Sill's book shows something quite a bit different than what is on his Life With QMail website.
Neither one works for me.
I can run the pop3d directly from /var/qmail... and it works OK with a user that has mail.
At the console, it fails on the password port 110. Using telnet from external, it cannot make a connection at all.
I'm using checkpassword 0.90 with the compilation patch installed. Testing this function using the procedure in Sill's book shows the function is working correctly.
If anybody has a clear example of installing POP3D with QMail, please post it here.
I'm new..i'm using Mandriva as a linux server for handling email (mail server)..my question is "how to change/force client password periodic for their email password ? so it will showup an message every month to ask the user to change their password.
