Firstly, my apologize, but my English is not the best. (I’m learning this language.:) )

I am a beginner programmer student so probably I will write some stupid things here, sorry for this.:) I would like to create a website with Node.JS on Ubuntu server that can send emails too. (For example when somebody is registering, the server send an email to this user.)
Firstly, I used Node.JS and the Nodemailer module with Google SMTP. It worked fine. However, I wanted to create my own email server. I installed Postfix, dovecot based on some tutorials/documentations. So, it worked fine. I could send emails with my own domain (like this manually from the terminal. But I couldn’t send emails via Nodemailer.
Maybe can somebody help me to find a solution how to configure Postfix etc to use it with Nodemailer? I know, it can be really complex but I hope somebody can help me:)

Thank you,

As far as i Know you must create a ticket and ask the support team to open the smtp for your droplet ,configuring POSTfix with nodemailer is a hectic and bad practice
