How to create email users?

October 2, 2014 3.1k views

Hello everybody… I installed the After Logic Lite on my droplet because I want to use a webmail, but I can't go on… I'm stuck here:

He ask me a email and password to login… but I did not create any user yet… actually I don't know how to do that?

Also I'm not sure how to config the DNS for that… I mean: how to setup the after logic to respond for

Can anyone here help me, please?
Many thanks!!

PS. By the way, I'm running on a wordpress installation over Ubuntu 14.04

What you've done is install a mailer to read mail, however you have not installed a mail service (an email program). So you can send and receive mail you have to install a MTA as Postfix, Exim, Qmail, etc (SMTP), if you want POP3 or IMAP, you have to install services such as dovecot, courier.

In short the After Logic Lite is like a thunderbird or outlook just web version, you need to repeat it as you install and configure a mail server.

I hope you were able to help you.


  • Thank you, Jhoedram… but it is too much complicated for me!

    Why we have to configure every piece (service) on the Droplet?? It doesn't makes any sense for me…

    In a era of great technology advance this philosophy of DigitalOcean it seems to walking in backwards. ¬¬

    The speed is excellent, the interface is good, but it is not the type of service that we need… I believe in simplicity and efficient things. Wp Engine and MediaTemple continues to be the best solutions for people like me.

    I don't want to use DigitalOcean services anymore… they blocked my droplet, anyway, since after that. I need better and more practical solutions for me and for my clientes.

    Once again, thanks for you attention!

Hi Marco:

Believe me I too had a similar problem at the beginning, and I said no because digitalocean this with a single click, the truth is somewhat difficult installation. It's the only bad thing about the VPS you have to install everything, but it has its advantages can also customize ...

If you want help, you can add me to google plus, my nick is + jhoedramplus. Here I will provide assistance without cost. :)

I hope we can stay in touch.


  • Dear jhoedram,
    thank you so much for your kindness and willingness to help me.

    It will be very valuable for me to learn and understand how to configure a server here, without messing things around or even do things wrong.

    I'll add you to my circles with pleasure… thanks a lot!
