Just bought an O'Reilly book "sendmail". This tome is two inches thick.
Now correct me if you will (and I'm sure you will) but all I want to do is
send an EMail, which in Windows is as simple as abc. I will be taking a
course in Samba and Apache soon, which I can see the point of of.
Any enlightenment out there.

I'm guessing you already have a email address and know the pop/smtp server addresses? ANd your username/password? Then its easy as pie. Just start kmail or mozilla-mail and figure out how to add an account. (With mozilla mail its just clicking on Edit > Mail And Newsgroups Account Settings.

If im worng about the above and you actually want to host your own email server, then its a little more difficult. I dont know how much help this would be, since you may not be using slackware, but I followed this to get my email server working.
