I want to manage my contact list email marketing (Newsletter) on my own server and have more control, I found a very good plugin for signal calling himself mymail already tested and shared hosting and it works perfectly. But here in the digital ocean is not working he even sends them via SMTP tests, bad time to do test campaigns they will not I do not receive email using smtp and the mandrill that works fine in other shared hosting. I wonder if you need some extra money so that I can effectively send my emails via SMTP setting the mandrill. could someone tell how to run? System Ubuntu 14.10x64 Lamp

Hi Júlio,

Unlike shared hosting, at DigitalOcean you get full root access to your VPS, but you are required to set up everything yourself. So you would need to install your own system for mail. We have some tutorials that should help you get started.

If you only need the ability to send mail from your server, you should install a Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) like postfix:

If you need IMAP as well, you'll need something like Dovecot:
