Delete Qmail Server messages Queue

qmail is a mail transfer agent that runs on Unix. It was more secure replacement for the popular Sendmail program. The author offered a $500 prize for the first person to publish a verifiable security hole in the latest version of the software. This is a useful thing to do in a number of situations. For instance, if you are hit with a spamming attack, you can temporarily instate a second Qmail installation (once the spam run is finished), allow it to take over mail receipt,and then use this tool to clean the offending mails out of the queue before switching over to the main Qmail installation once again.

First Hi to everyone on this forum. I have a problem with setting my internet connection from ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft.

Ubuntu is ready for any computer user

I believe that today Ubuntu has come to a state that makes it easy to install and use by any computer user. If you can work with Microsoft Windows, you should have no problem working with Ubuntu. The transition from Windows to Ubuntu might take a short time of adjustment, but by any standard it is not a difficult transition. Ubuntu is built to be easy as possible, and it gets easier from day to day. In addition the web community is very supportive, and it is easy to find on-line help whenever a problem oucers. I will try to explain some of the stuff that beginners need to now in my new blog: http://ubuntua2z.blogspot.com . My guides will be written with the less technically inclined computer users in mind. I will also use http://www.ubuntux.org as place to exchange ideas about these issues with my peers. 

How To Use NTFS Drives/Partitions Under Ubuntu Edgy Eft

Normally Linux systems can only read from Windows NTFS partitions, but not write to them which can be very annoying if you have to work with Linux and Windows systems. This is where ntfs-3g comes into play. ntfs-3g is an open source, freely available NTFS driver for Linux with read and write support. This tutorial shows how to install and use ntfs-3g on an Ubuntu Edgy Eft desktop to read from and write to Windows NTFS drives and partitions. It covers the usage of internal NTFS partitions (e.g. in a dual-boot environment) and of external USB NTFS drives. http://www.howtoforge.com/ubuntu_edgy_eft_ntfs_ntfs_3g

cpia deb fails to find python when using python?

Greetings from the edge of the world!We have been trying to figure out why this happens with no luck for a week so we thought we would drop it here and see if any of you recognize it.We downloaded the latest cpia deb and went to install it and it pops up and says it cant install because it needs python.The thing is we were then and are now running python and idle.The only thing we can come up with is that the deb installer wants an older version of python????Ok thanx all...breaking windows one user at a time
