I’ve actually configured postfix as on this tutorial: How to Install and Configure Postfix as a Send-Only SMTP Server on Ubuntu 16.04
Then, I tried Step 3 to send an Email to my Gmail account, as follows:
echo "This is the body of the email" | mail -s "Gmail Test" myAccount@gmail.com
But, I always obtained the following ERROR message:

Hi @jiapei1000 ,
These days there are alot of servers setup as spam mailserver. Because of that, e-mail providers like Outlook, Gmail, etc. do alot of checking before allowing anything to come in. If you like to setup your own mailserverver, you will have to try a bit harder. :)
Some things you will have to take into account:
So as you can see there are some things you will have to look into. This is however a great opportunity to learn something new! I have setup more than 20+ mailservers and know alot about it, so I do also know that debugging them can be a pain.
If this is not clear enough, please tell me. I could write some tutorial about it if needed.
A tutorial (still) would be great :)
