Hello, @kalpeshcipatel

If you’re interested in using Postfix alongside Gmail to send emails from your droplet you can also check this mini tutorial:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

Hello,

As far as I can see script does not support Ubuntu 20.04 yet.

As this is an open-source project, you could submit a feature request via the official GitHub repository and ask for Ubuntu 20.04 support:

https://github.com/mail-in-a-box/mailinabox

Alternatively, you could submit a pull request introducing the change.

Another option is to use a control panel like VestaCP which comes with a mail server pre-configured:

Also as a side note, I could suggest taking a look at this post here:
