How to access admin mails in Wordpress on Ubuntu 18.04?

Posted December 21, 2019 1.1k views

Hi setup a WordPress site and I entered “” as the admin email. I tried to figure out how to access “” mails by setting up a mailserver but failed. I read through a lot of tutorials in the DO Community but could not find one which helps me. I tried setting up postfix but when I opened postfix’s config file, there was entries already, I guess it was made by WordPress while I setup the droplet and I do not want to mess with it as I am afraid it will disrupt the email functionalities of WordPress.

Can anyone point me to the right direction and help me access the mails. Thank you.

Hi @nitinjain,

DigitalOcean has a great guide that can be found here on how to setup and configure Roundcube

I know the guide is for ubuntu 16.04 however it can be applied for 18.04 as well and will help you reach your goal.

If you want to stop seeing ads when you check your email, or if you've moved from a public email service to your own domain, you can run your own webmail client (also known as a mail user agent or MUA). In this tutorial, you will set up the webmail client Roundcube backed by Gmail.
