Creating an E-mail Address Account

Hello folks,

How do I go about creating an e-mail address ALIAS so that I can send or receive e-mail to my Gmail address?

I’ve looked at Postfix/Dovecot mailservers setups, etc. But most of the instructions/tutorials are extraordinarily long and difficult to create and setup for a newbie like me.

What are my best options or alternatives? Is there an easy way? My droplet is running Ghost on Ubuntu 12.04.

Any advice or help is greatly appreciated! Thank you, everyone…

@Kamar <br> <br>Thanks. Does this cover both ways of email traffic? outgoing/incoming? If I send email(outgoing) from custom mail, will gmail send mail to custom email automatically ? <br>I haven’t seen any smtp steps for that as I don’t see this tutorial would cover both ways… newbie here, please let me know. <br> <br>Thanks!
