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.

gargamel - I looked at Trojita (http://trojita.flaska.net/) a while ago, but it was in the early stages of development, so much so that it didn't support sending email yet. You might want to take a look and see how far the developer has gotten with it.

Reason: close paranthesis
Just tried trojita. As you say, it's in an early state of development. Good: There are useful hints for end-users, such as, that passwords entered in the respective field in the configuration dialog will cause, that the password is saved in clear, human-readable text on the hard disk.
Apart from that, trojita will need some time (a year or so) before it becomes a viable MUA --- but the potential, that it really becomes that, is there.
sorry bob for not answering before: tried now qtfm and seems to work.
Just tried it, too, myself. I'd confirm "seems to work", but found a problem in the GUI: Non-English special characters, such as German umlauts, are displayed with a wrong character set. I found no way to change this in the settings dialog.
Note, that this is only in the GUI. The content, i. e. file and folder names, is displayed correctly, once the correct character set is chosen! Finally, memory consumption is lower than with KDE, but not *that* much lower...
Apart from that, my sympathy for Razor-Qt grows constantly.
