The third edition is more than a new edition; it is a complete re-write that vastly improves the sendmail book. The second edition had 38 chapters spread over a 1,000 pages. All of the details were there, but they were so hard to find, the index was the most used section of the book. Not anymore! Despite adding 200 more pages of material, the book has been reduced to 25 logical, organized chapters. Each chapter describes an important function and covers that function in a step-by-step manner.
The book is well organized, beautifully written, and a joy to read.
I would suggest to the negative reviewers here to stick with a zero configuration solution such as iMail, this isn't a hold your hand setup text, it's reference. Sendmail requires some dedication, the learning curve is steep, but the rewards are great.
I've been using sendmail for 3 years and I just tried Qmail and Postfix. I have chosen Postfix because it's so darn efficiant and configurable.
Viktor Duchovni, is a great help on the online community and the online docs are just as detaild as this sendmail book.
If you are stuck on sendmail then get this book.
But try Qmail and Postfix if you can...
BTW... RedHat lets you choose between Postfix or Sendmail. That means a lot to me.
Anyone who is serious about sendmail administration and configuration must use this book.
sendmail is far to complex to be used w/o a great reference such as this.
