https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-postfix-e-mail-server-with-dovecot.
I create user joe with passwd “ps1” with root successfully.
When i lgoin into my vps , joe@mydomain.com can sent and receive email via postfix and dovecot .
There two passwords here for joe : one is for joe to login into vps ,one is for joe to enter the email .

What error messages does Thunderbird give you when you try to connect?

If the error message says something similar to timed out or connection refused a firewall may be blocking the connection, if there’s a firewall either on your local network or on the droplet, try disabling them and try to connect.
