I just installed RH Linux 7.3 over 7.0 system.  Totally wiped out everything.  I thought I had saved all the system information for bringing the new system up to what the old system was.  I was wrong.

The old machine would retrieve email from my ISP and store it in /var/spool/mail.  I can't remember how I set that up.  

I could access the messages in /var/spool/mail from other machines on the local network.  I don't remember how I set that up either.

I could send email from a machine within the local network addressed from a user on the server.  And I also have managed to forget that bit of info as well.

I would very much like help in getting these abilities back.
