The book then goes into all the gory details of sendmail.

You can read this and then the "bat" book so that you will be familiar "Sendmail" a lot.

The author was careful in writing a book which would satisfy even unexperienced system administrator.

Format: Paperback
Until the O'Reilly "Bat Book" is updated and expanded, this book should become the standard sendmail reference book, for linux as well as other unicies...
The information is cleanly laid out, explored and described. The author presents not only broad knowledge/information, but in depth experience with the MTA and related technologies.
I found this book quite helpfull when stuck with the minutia of a sendmail.cf file, and the information in the beginning of the book in great for those new to sendmail and/or linux.

This reference does a good job detailing a difficult topic "Sendmail". I liked the background information alot and the author clearly seperates items that are of general interest, specific interest and advanced interest. This book helped me convert a 300 user system from mmdf to sendmail in a weekend. The only recommendation for this book and other Sendmail books I have is a better chapter/explainations on how to stop spam, check your system for spam etc. I had to go online for better spam blocking tricks.

Format: Paperback
Having read another popular sendmail book, made me wonder if I should try again. Sendmail is large complex program and can be very daunting.
Craig Hunt's Linux Sendmail Administration turned out to be quite refreshing. I'm no longer satisfied with just setting up the basic sendmail configuration. His easy to understand, easy to follow style had me tinkering at each step along the way. I was looking for a simple how-to guide to get my home office sendmail up and running. Instead I got much more - a very thorough understanding of how and why sendmail works the way it does.
Craig has a knack for reducing complex concepts into easily understandable lessons. Doing so, the subject matter is covered in depth, not watered down. Even difficult tasks like the m4 macro processor and rewriting rules are introduced in a straight forward useful manner.
An excellent book, I can't wait for my next installment from the Craig Hunt Linux series!

Format: Paperback
This book is excellent. It starts out with the concepts and architecture of email services and then goes step by step through the installation. Since the installation changed a bit after this book came out I recommend following the directions in the README file after downloading the sendmail tarball off of ftp.sendmail.org. The book then goes into all the gory details of sendmail. I have looked all over the net and have yet to find a begin to end sendmail guide- this is what you want

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Cup O Joe on June 9, 2002
Format: Paperback
New to sendmail,I needed to set up an email gateway/relay for our network. This book seemed to be the best because it addresses later sendmail versions than the current batbook. The problem I have with sendmail in general is the mountain of information available without any good way to tie it all together. Deciding which information does or does not apply to my situation was the most difficult part. More examples of configurations would be helpful. With this book,other internet resources,trial and error, and enough time, you can eventually complete your project. Great book if you want to learn sendmail theory. Not so great if you want complete configuration examples or a quick "how to".

Format: Paperback
I have been frantically searching for a sendmail book that would just get me through the fundamentals. Much of the internet material are hacks by admins professing to know something, but get you into more trouble. I checked out the bat book (O'Reilly) and get cross-eyed going through that tomb, which seems to be more of a reference than a practical guide.

This book finally hit the jackpot. It has excellent explanations. The explanations for basic SMTP, IMAP, POP are very short and sweet, and excellent to get everyone on the same page, before delving into sendmail. The sendmail section is great, and really explained how the get the basic system going and the problems with sendmail for initial setup. Before this book, I was confused by the whole directory structure and m4 system, and this book walked me through it. That alone made this book was so invaluable. Thank you.

This book is oriented strictly to Linux. I have to administrater Solaris, so Linux is not in my scope now, but given that Unices are similar that is not a problem.

I find that overall this book to be quite practical, and doesn't have needless explanations, just exactly what you need to get a feel and handle on sendmail.

I'm sure there are undoubtedly rants here from sendmail hackers that profess to be gurus, which I am sure will neg my review. This review is not for them, but rather for the normal folks that have a life and are eager to learn, but yet need to administer sendmail as well (especially where time to implement this stuff is critical).

Based on the TOC, I've been anxiously awaiting this book (so I can figure out a bunch of sendmail problems I have). Well, it's even better than I anticipated! The initial chapters on concepts are clear; the discussion of the .cf is very useful & complete. In the real world env., I suspect this might even supplant the "bat" book! (agree? comments?)

The first half of the book has many useful information for beginners while the second half goes into details useful for more experienced users. I especially like the tables through out the book that nicely organize and explain the various commands, variables, names, etc.
I don't know when the "bat" will be updated, but this book will is hard to beat. It's easy to read and understand. Best of all, it's very well organized.
