Thanks @KDSys, I just want to update that postfix should be already installed. Will update the list soon. Please also check the mail in Spam.

Hi @devInProgress,

The OpenLiteSpeed WordPress image does not come with any SMTP service like postfix. You can check the included software here:

If you wish to configure mailboxes and send out e-mails, you’ll need an SMTP service. You can use Postfix for that. DigitalOcean have a pretty good tutorial on installing and configuring it. You can check that here

If you wish to configure mailboxes as well, you’ll additionally need to check the following article:
