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.

the problem is that now its all setup i cant seem to send via SMTP.
from the webmail i get a Connection Refused Error and I have tried everything (not everything obviously cause otherwise i would have fixed it) but everything i can think of.
any where that i can check configurations etc?
the webmail works.. IMAP works, pop3 works everything seems to work except for the stupid SMTP
Any ideas? Anything you want me to post?
btw its not a firewall issue.

Ok, try going into the /var/qmail/supervise directory and delete the lock files. There are lock files located under each of the directories. Get them all. qmail will make them again in a few seconds. You may also wanna stop and restart qmail just for good measure.
ok when i clear the lock files and restart I got this in the qmail log:
@4000000040cfa22c136d9c24 tcpserver: fatal: unable to bind: address already used
@4000000040cfa22d15364664 tcpserver: fatal: unable to bind: address already used
@4000000040cfa22e1700fffc tcpserver: fatal: unable to bind: address already used
so i did a restart.... im really baffled on this... i have obviously done SOMETHING wrong but cant figure it out...
Yeah, sorry.. I seem to have forgotten that would happen. It's trying to start another instance of qmail and you've already got daemons listening on those ports. You can reboot and it'll clear right up, but if you don't wanna reboot, you can just stop qmail and be sure to kill all those processes that are running. Just do ps -ef and kill anything that talks about qmail, but of course be sure to stop qmail first.
Ok, let's try this... run the command /var/qmail/bin/qmail-showctl and post the output here. This will show all your current settings and how you've got qmail configured. If you feel like you need to censor the output, that's Ok, but be aware that it really helps to show everything as-is so we can be sure it's all good.
also, is it possible you have a CR/LF problem? Have you modified any of your control files using a windows text editor through samba? If so, this is certainly a problem. If you have been editing your control files through windows, you'll need to do a vi -b on each control file and delete the ^M characters you see at the end of each line.
