Question

Setting up email accounts

Hi! This is my first time with a VPS.

It was great. I could install apache, php, mysql, svn (as a client and server), a few domains pointing to different directories, but I am stuck with my email configuration. I tried a lot of options: dkim, sendmail, postfix, but I am not understanding and/or it is not working.

I don’t want anything too complicated. I would be happy if I can make a forward to gmails accounts, something like:

*@domain1, *@domain2 -> myaccount@gmail.com admin@domain1 -> admin@gmail john@domain2 -> admin@gmail

and stuff like that :)

Thank you!

PS: I used this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-and-setup-postfix-on-ubuntu-12-04

@florian: Take a look at the article raiyu linked - does it help?

Same here, I’m stuck in this very step and was looking for a more detailed explanation of how to achieve quite exactly what the OP was asking…

I tried that but it seems not to be working :(
