I have been stuggling here trying to get kmail configured. Sure looks staright forword. I am using the smtp and pop. I have a basic "mail.mydomain.com" and checked with my host to make sure the ports are correct.

Any Idea where I should look for a can't connect error?

Glad you got the problem solved David. What distribution did you install, and how did it go?

I installed the Redhat 7.2 (bought the box to make sure I had what I needed).
First installation I partitioned my hard drive with windows on half and Linux on the other. I used the grub boot loader. I used the custom install and had know Idea what packages I needed to Install (lib's and stuff). So alot of things didn't run the way they should and when I tried to install something new I was always missing something.
Second install I bought a second hard drive and installed everything on it. I still have not got the boot loader to work so I boot Linux from a floppy. Now I am going through the process of uninstalling the stuff I don't need.
I am also trying to learn how to optimize it better. I have a P4 1.7 ghz with 512 megs ram and things load pretty slow (compared to win 98). I am also having a problem with it crashing, mostly when using a browser on the web.

I think if I installed a third time I might get it right!

When a program locks up the machine, is there a way to unlock other than turning the machine of and rebooting?

Some things you can try (note--I haven't used RedHat in windows mode in a long long time...:)):

1. press <alt>-F2 this (may) take you to another virtual terminal, where you can log in, find the offending process, and kill it. Pressing <alt>-F1 should take you back to the main terminal.

2. Failing that, go to another computer and try telnetting into the machine (or ssh, if you've got that running). Log in, find the offending process, and kill it. :)

3. Possibly, you can press (fuzzy memory alert...) <ctrl>-<alt>-<backspace> to close the windows session and drop to the command line.

I've read a lot of good things about redhat's strides in the installation possess. Mandrake has a very good install program, I even got it working on a Sony laptop that was networked through an NT server.
