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.

First off, thanks to all who asked the questions and to those who gave answers and guidance to email server setup and configuration. With those threads alone, I've been able to get qmail and qmail-pop3d working almost as they should.
When I send an email, it is sucessfully sent from my mail program (Ximian Evolution on a RHES3 system). When I check for messages, the task completes sucessfully. However, I recieve no messages.
qmailctl stat reveals:
# qmailctl stat
/service/qmail-send: up (pid 23504) 0 seconds
/service/qmail-send/log: up (pid 5346) 5986 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd: up (pid 5345) 5986 seconds
/service/qmail-smtpd/log: up (pid 5343) 5987 seconds
messages in queue: 2
messages in queue but not yet preprocessed: 2
/service/qmail-pop3d: up (pid 23503) 0 seconds
/service/qmail-pop3d/log: up (pid 5347) 5986 seconds
I know each of these are supposed to have an up-time of greater than 1, however qmail-send and qmail-pop3d bounce back and forth between 0 & 1.
An sh check_install returns a congratulations!
From /var/qmail a ./rc reveals:
env: qmail-start: No such file or directory
(I'm assuming that the directory within the exec in rc is the directory it cannot find. Is that correct?)
My assumption leads me to check the defaultdelivery file which points to ./Maildir/ .
What else can I look into to see why qmail-send and qmail-pop3d are continuously restarting?
I changed /var/qmail/rc to match the file in /var/qmail/boot/ that worked for my system, binm3 is what worked for me.
After that change, all the services are up and running for the same amount of time. The messages get preprocessed, but the messages stay in the queue. Any ideas why they aren't being delivered to the users mailbox?
