Birmingham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 24, 2009 -- Packt is pleased to announce Linux Email, a new book that covers everything that users need to know in order to set up their own Linux server. Written by professional Linux administrators, this book is a simple step-by-step guide to setting up a Linux email server using the most popular free Open Source tools such as PostFix, ProcMail, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, and others.
Linux is a free and open source software collaboration whereby typically all the underlying source code can be used, freely modified, and redistributed, both commercially and non-commercially, by anyone under the terms of the GNU GPL. Linux is predominantly known for its use in servers, although can be installed on a wide variety of computer hardware ranging from embedded devices, mobile phones and even some watches as well as supercomputers.
Linux Email helps users overcome the complexities involved in getting started with Linux. They can create mail filters, sort their incoming mail into separate folders, pre-process their mail, start any programs upon mail arrival and selectively forward certain incoming mail automatically to someone using Procmail.
With the help of various screen shots and clear explanation, this book takes a practical, step-by-step approach to working with email servers. This book begins with a discussion as to why users should consider hosting their own email and goes on to look at providing web access which will enable users to access their email out of the office. It covers features that will help users enhance email productivity and ultimately, takes the user through the essential maintenance task.
This book should prove both pleasing to read and useful for technically confident users ,new or part-time system administrators in small businesses, who want to set up a Linux-based email server without consuming excess time becoming an expert in the individual applications.
This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information, please visit: Linux Email
