A quick question.....But what about the people who login as ROOT? A virus could attack and if the payload is deadly, then the system is toast correct? I think such people will require to use the Anti-Virus software....

Setting up a MTA

hi all,

I am thinking of setting up a Mail Transport Agent on my system...so as to use the SMTP service for outgoing mails. Is it possible to do this? Will I be able to send mails using my system? This is just a home system..not on a LAN
Am on a dial-up modem with a dynamic IP.


thanks,

Also, how do the files retain the permissions of someone else? I mean, after I extract the tar on my system, the...
