A good book that I found is "Setting up a Linux Internet Server, A visual Blick Book" Coriolis Press.

Re: sendmail forwarder

I guess a real question here is your definition of "forwarder". You could actually use procmail to do it as on a number of systems it is the actual delivery agent. If you have an account on the machine you want forwarded, you can go into the GUI, click on User, and then mail settings and put in a forwarding address. This is handled via the file "virtusertable" that is in /etc/mail directory. This is not the same with all computers as I have a file called "alias" on another appliance system that handles the delivery.
