Review:
Sendmail might not be the heart of UNIX mail and communications services, but it certainly is a good portion of the autonomic nervous system. Although considered venerable by some, it is also extremely widely used. This book hopes to make sendmail administration not only easy, but fun. Quite a task. Part one of the book is tutorial in nature, starting with background information in chapter one. We are given a brief history and philosophy of sendmail, plus some description of the component parts, and the related Internet RFCs (Request For Comment) and technologies. (RFCs, the name to the contrary, are the descriptions of how Internet functions should work. In a sense, they are the standards of the Internet.) Chapter two giv...

Review:

Review:
Prince-like, this book insists on an unpronounceable title. In the interests of usable referents, might we dispense with the suggested "that darned book" and possibly come up with "Bang-Through-At-For"? This book is a reference work. It details the various computer networks with mail links or gateways to the "true" Internet. It is common to cite such works as "indispensable": in fact, most users, and even site managers, muddle along quite happily without it. Quick reference "electronic" versions exist of very similar documents, which provide the addressing schemes for the more common network and commercial service gateways. Also, once you know one CompuServe Internet address, you know 'em all. Frey and Adams have, however, p... Rest of this review on the detail page
