Book News Annotation:

This book offers step-by-step instructions and standard and advanced techniques for installing, configuring, and maintaining Linux Sendmail, and illustrates techniques with many examples. Rather than being merely a reference to all of the Sendmail configuration options, the book provides insight into how real servers are actually configured. Material assumes an understanding of computers and IP networks, and of Linux system administration. Hunt is a TCP/IP and Linux expert who lectures at networking trade shows. He has written other books on Linux.
