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 have been brave as of late, installed and successfully using Mozilla-Firebird, so thought I would take the next step, and try Mozilla-Thunderbird. Successfully installed Thunderbird, but having considerable issue with the establishment of multiple accounts. It seems Thunderbird defaults to using the same outgoing account settings for all accounts, which really is not "meeting the need of the masses", if you know what I mean. (I have downloaded and installed Thunderbird 0.8)
I have done my homework, and searched the forums for "corrective action"
" You can tell Thunderbird to use more than one identity per mail account. This would be the case where you have a catch-all account for a domain or forward emails from another email address. The instructions below assume that you have Thunderbird 0.7 (or higher).
- Go to Tools -> Account Settings
- Choose the account that you wish to add additional identities to
- Click Manage Identities (The button is on lower right)
- Add the additional identity that you want.
- Repeat as necessary for additional identities
Now, you can select any of the identities when replying to mail or composing a new message."
or ................................ per the Thunderbird mail account wizard :
"Your existing outgoing server (SMTP), "outgoing.fubar.net", will be used. You can modify outgoing servers settings by choosing Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings from the Edit menu"
---------------------THIS, I have been unable to find, hence my frustration.
Please, if you have any experience in sorting out this situation to an acceptable conclusion .... give me a hollar.
I have been using Thunderbird with Linux and Mac with no problems =.
Multiple account works fine.
To set-up multiple SMTP server: (for Thunderbird0.8)
Tools --> Account Settings
Scroll down the list of your email acounts to the bottom. Where it says "Outgoing Server (SMTP)"
Click on that (highlighted)
and on the right side, the Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings appear.
click the Advance button.
A window will pop-up
Now you can add as many SMTP server as you wish.
(settings is self-explanatory)
After adding all the SMTP servers you needed. Go to each account which you wish to change the SMTP server.
Click on the account "Server Settings" then Advance button on the right.
A window will pop-up with 2 tabs. SMTP and POP.
Choose SMTP and a drop-down list will appear with all your SMTP server settings. choose the corresponding one.
