Email Server on CentOS 7.x with Sentora CP?

I want to set up a personal email server in my droplet having sentora control panel!

I have used iredmail, but no luck it causing problem with sentora CP.

Tried with postfix and dovecot, still no luck it only send mail and can’t connect to a desktop email client like outlook and Thunderbird.

I want to make available my email account to send and receive mail via outlook or Thunderbird mail client using my CENTOS server. Regards,

When it comes to setting up a fully functional, working e-mail server, ideally you need to set it up on it’s own Droplet/Server – independent of your web server. There’s a lot that goes in to running a mail server, specifically ensuring that SPF, DKIM and potentially DMARC are working as intended as those are three things that are going to keep your e-mail out of the junk/spam folders (without them, mail is going to end up in junk/spam).

If you’re dead-set on running your own mail server, I’d take a look at MailCow. It’s relatively easy to set up and use.
