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'm relatively new to the linux world. I am currently running RH 7.3 and qmail 1.03.
I have installed qmail (multiple times) to the best of my abilities according to life with qmail. However, I keep having the same problem. Sporadically, messages will stop being delivered from the queue to a user's mailbox.
In other words, qmailctl queue displays a number of messages (> 0) in the queue, but I can't get the messages to be delivered to a mailbox.
There does not appear to be any rhyme or reason to when this happens. The only solution I have found is to reboot the computer (what can I say, I grew up on Microsoft), however this is not a practical long term solution. Once the computer restarts, the messages are delivered to the mailbox. I tried issuing qmailctl stop and then qmailctl start, thinking this may acheive the same effect as rebooting the computer, but the message remained stuck in the queue.
From what I have read about qmail, it sounds like "qmail-send" is the program that is responsible for delivering messages...Is that program the problem? What log files should I check for more information?
