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.

SuSE 10.2 server with sendmail (8.13), MailScanner (with f-prot, clamav and bitdefender antivirus) and Spamassassin, for IMAPs and POP3s i use the default services under xinetd (I used dovecot but had troubles setting up IMAPs and POP3s so I removed it)
I am trying to secure my mail traffic. I implemented successfully POP3s. Now i'm trying to implement SMTP AUTH + TLS. I've compiled sendmail as a TLS server, when i run "telnet localhost 25" and give it an "ehlo" i can see that TLS is available, also AUTH. I am not convinced, so I check again with "sendmail -d0.1 -bv root" and I can see there "SASLv2" So, I am getting excited and I try "starttls" after telnet on localhost. My beauty responds with an " 2.0.0 ready to start tls". I am already happy and i try talking with her : "ehlo localhost" And there she goes... conection is closed without warnings.
I am trying to understand what's happening and give it a try with "sendmail -O LogLevel=14 -bs -Am" and after look into the mail log and here is what I get:
Apr 2 14:52:11 suse sendmail: NOQUEUE: connect from root@localhost
Apr 2 14:52:11 suse sendmail: STARTTLS=server, Diffie-Hellman init, key=512 bit (1)
