comment Why specify host for SMTP?
Can one of the "closers" of this question please explain why this post has been closed. I think it's clear what my question was, additionally there was a great answer from @NickW below and this itself has helped at least 2 other people.

comment What is a Pem file and how does it differ from other OpenSSL Generated Key File Formats?
@Jez good question, as I understand it the .pub is the certificate (aka public key) part. (Disclaimer: this may be wrong)

comment What's the magic of the “sudo su”?
From the man su page. "The optional argument - may be used to provide an environment similar to what the user would expect had the user logged in directly." Obvious advantage there. sudo -i vs sudo su -?

comment should use sudo or just su root in server management?
@ShannonNelson I believe they're mentioning the root user and password as rented servers are usually provided with these.
