Trying to install postfix on my ubuntu

Hey guys, I was trying to install and configure postfix on my ubuntu 16.04 droplet.

I was stuck here, at the last command before “Managing Mail with the Client” section from https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-postfix-on-ubuntu-16-04 : /home/root/Maildir/

According with your tutorial: http://prntscr.com/emzgcm What I see: http://prntscr.com/emzgjh

After this command, I don’t know what to type forward in my terminal.

Would you like to help me please?

You’ve done the tutorial with root as the mail user. I’m fairly sure this is the cause of the problem. Try with another user, maybe alex ?
