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 guess you followed the directions on the install page just like I did. I had a problem but I found the answer so I'll share it with you in case you had the same one. Now I have hotwayd working fine and it's a simple solution.
First I installed the program and the lib file. When you follow the directions for editing your inetd file, be sure that you use the full path to hotwayd, not just 'hotwayd' like they say. I used /usr/sbin/hotwayd, or whatever you find with 'which hotwayd'. That was all I needed and now it's working fine. Only shortcoming is that you can't send through hotmail.
Hope that helps you some.
there is another program written in java called "Mr. Postman" which does the same thing (although not as good) as hotwayd. i used it first, and it seems to work prety well on my RH 9 system, using both evolution and thunderbird....
Ive gone to the site and i dont know which one to downloa, i tried to download the tar.gz one but when i downloaded the file, and oped it it had no use full readme! should i download one of the files, or can i find detailed instructions elsewhere? sorry if i sound really dumb, but i havent used linux for long!
unfortunately (and it seems like this is what you are looking for based on last post), is that there is no way currently of sending an email through hotmail using either mrpostman or hotwayd. it just can't be done with current methods, but they are great for retrieving messages.
if you wanna try a paying method--crossover office has the ability to run outlook express on linux for a nominal fee.
