Ubuntu Linux new version upgrade

There's couple of ways to upgrade to new version of Ubuntu Linux. Of all those I found that use "apt-get upgrade via mounted iso image(alternate CD) is the most efficient way.

Here is how to do it.

1. Grab Ubuntu Linux alternate CD by using your favorite torrent client.

2. mount iso image to /media/cdrom (so that apt-cdrom can find it without any trouble)

# sudo mount -t iso9660 ubuntu-x.xx-alternatie-xxxx.iso /media/cdrom -o loop

3. add mounted iso image as port of apt sources.list

# sudo apt-cdrom -m add (-m tells apt-cdrom not to mount iso image, since it already mounted)

4. time to upgrade

# sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

5. Now it's time to grab a cup of whatever you like and sit back to let upgrade did the job.

6. After dist-upgrade done, use update manager for update system to most current state.

Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

Followed the solution from this link send-&-receive email from hotmail in Evolution
, I am having my evolution fetching and sending email through my hotmail email account. The reason I used method in this link is it uses xinetd instead of inetd.

In the link it only mentioned about adding POP3 support to hotmail, I added the following code to make SMTP support for hotmail as well.

create /etc/xinetd.d/hotsmtpd

use following code as containts:

service hotsmtpd
#only_from =
disable = no
type = unlisted
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = nobody
groups = yes
server = /usr/bin/hotsmtpd
#server_args = -p http://proxy:8080
port = 2500
** I use 2500 for smtp port**

This link gives detailed how to add hotmail account in Evolution.

Now, what I am looking for is the solution to be able to keep the file on mail server but deleted it when I deleted it from my local evolution mail client.
