5.1. Feedback

(Vince wrote this section, but my policy is the same.)

I am interested in any feedback, positive or negative, regarding the content of this document via e-mail. Definitely contact me if you find errors or obvious omissions.

I read, but do not necessarily respond to, all e-mail I receive. Requests for enhancements will be considered and acted upon based on that day's combination of available time, merit of the request, and daily blood pressure :-)

Flames will quietly go to /dev/null so don't bother.

In particular, the Linux filesystem standard for pathnames is an evolving thing. What's in this document is there for illustration only based on the current standard at the time that part of the document was written and in the paths used in the distributions or `kits' I've personally seen. Please consult your particular Linux distribution(s) for the paths they use.

Feedback concerning the actual format of the document should go to the HOWTO coordinator - mail to linux-howto@metalab.unc.edu).

5.4. Acknowledgements

This was originally authored by Vince Skahan. I have rewritten it for the modern ISP-centric world in which UUCP is little more than a memory.

In May 1999, the name was changed from "The Linux Electronic Mail HOWTO" to avoid a collision with Guylhem Aznar's Mail HOWTO, which will become the Mail Administrator HOWTO.
