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 use RH9, 2.4.20-8 and have evolution 1.2.2-4. AMD K6-2 400, 320 ram, and 60 gig hdd. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The POP3 server is imap.mail15.net and the SMTP is smtp.mail15.net. I have been able to get my POP3 to work and am able to download my new messages into evolution, but whenever I try to send, ximian gives me an error messsage, "Error while performing operation: Could not connnect to smtp.mail15.com (port 25):Network is unreachable. I really need this to work becuase this is a 15mb email account. I've tried gmx and gawab, but I keep getting the same error message. Please help.
I'm trying to get my gmx.net one to work, 20 mb free space. My email. I disabled the firewall (dont' know how to just allow useage of port 25) and now I am getting an error telling me that host hookup failed: mail.gmx.net unknown reason. Any help?
Distribution: OpenBSD 4.6, OS X 10.6.2, CentOS 4 & 5
Many ISPs will not let you connect to 25/TCP on any server besides their own as a way to prevent people from using their service to SPAM. Check with your ISP to see if they're blocking outbound connections to port 25.
PS it's trivial to discover mail server hostnames any many times the ISP will have them published on the public section of their website, so it's no security breach. Even if they were "secret" you could just call their tech support number and find out, or pick-up a free install CD-ROM and it would tell you in the instructions. Security by obscurity is a failed model any way. People who think keeping secrets makes them secure are people who don't understand security very well.
I have a similar problem, I've configured properly my smtp including authentication, but every time I try to send a mail it keeps on saying <address@address>relaying not allowed. I don't know what can be happening
dont know if this means anything to anyone, but...
i had the same problem, using cox.net servers. Found out it was a combination of version 1.2 and the mail server settings (wouldnt close connection after a certain command). upgraded to 1.4, and am working fine.
I'm using Ximian Evolution 1.0.8 on Mandrake 9.0. I had the same problem and somewhere I found one solution: to choose "NT login" in Tools > Mail Settings > [Account] > Edit > Sending Mail, Authentication Type. It worked... for a while. Trying to install something else I lost KDE, so I switch to Gnome and now I have the same problem, and the NT login trick does not work anymore. (And I really need to get the email working to contact my linux-guru friends to help me out with a load of more problems!!)
