Securing Mail and Web hosting server

Does anyone know of any easy to follow web pages about securing sendmail and apache 2.0 web server and also red hat 8.0?

I am using red hat 8.0 server to host mail and a web page.

Are there any tests i can run myself to make sure the server is secure?

thanks again

Sendmail has a bad security history. You should really consider choosing another MTA like Postfix. Regarding Apache 2, check this thread
