How to create email users?

Posted October 2, 2014 4k 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!
