Question

Email account?

Hi, I have a vps and I am using mysql, nginx and phpmyadmin together with wordpress. I installed postfix and the wordpress notifications are working. But how can I have an email account to use in a program like thunderbird or outlook? How do I config that in linux?

Thanks
