Simplest way to have email on VPS
I do suck at this, but I managed to create a droplet with Ubuntu 20.04LTS, LAMPS stack and is running a PHP Script I bought for a project I’m starting soon, so far so good. Reading here I understood that installing a mail server is a complex task and it makes a dent on the droplet resources, and obviously I have no idea how to manage that either.
I need to send a confirmation email every time an new user is registered, and I’ve achieved that using Sendgrid and it works, but I have no (free) way to receive pop or imap email. I want to create, (I actually did it on zoho.com) 3 accounts info - register - support @mydomain.com but I can only use one account at the time, is web based, so no pop or imap and no way to use the 3 accounts under a single login or dashboard.
I foudn somewhere that if I have another website on shared hosting, I can somehow use that infrastructure to manage email from the domain hosted on the VPS, based on MX or TXT records,but not sure if I got that right or no.
Excuse my english if it’s not clear enough, maybe I’m asking for something that doesn’t exist as free, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.
