I have installed mail server successfully on my vps according to
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 .
which one will i fill in the password in thunderbird?I tried tow of them ,all failures.

Why can't connect my mail on my vps via thunderbird locally?

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.
