Hi,


First learn linux basics for exmp. installation a program or general commands, and examine principles of a server.Then
You shuld start with dns server because you need dns server for mail server.


This is the way that i followed when i met linux.(2 weeks ago )

Sarah,


Visit www.tldp.org and download from it or browse some guides thereon. You should complete the Linux Intro guide available there. You will have a better understanding of what to do next or where to go next from there.

Mail Server and other Servers require that you know at least basic commands and working knowledge of vi or vim or some other editor available on your Unix / Linux distro.

Try to grasp that knowledge first and experiment with the basics and then you are free to move anywhere in the Linux World.

I mean learn basic commands and get informed about linux folder structure.Maybe search about tcp ip model. Then start with servers.

Also you can find lost of documents or online books in internet

Here's a very good Linux tutorial http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz
I suggest you read+practice that first, then you can worry about 'servers'.
