Hello, @ejmatap

Would you mind sharing the exact tutorial that you’re following and the exact error message that you receive as well?

If you’re just attempting to send outgoing mail from the server, I strongly recommend using a service like Sendgrid or Mandrill. They both offer free tiers.

As a side note, here is an interesting read on why you may not want to run your own mail server but rather use an SMTP provider:

When setting up a web site or application under your own domain, it is likely that you will also want a mail server to handle the domain's incoming and outgoing email. While it is possible to run your own mail server, it is often not the best option for a variety of reasons. This guide will cover many of the reasons that you may not want to run your own mail server, and offer a few alternatives.
