Question

Trying to receive e-mails but a little lost.

Hi.

I’ve set up postfix and I’ve followed this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-postfix-e-mail-server-with-dovecot

I’m running an Ubuntu droplet. I’m trying to get my mail working for my website so that I can send and receive mails. I have managed to set up so I can send mails. But I can’t figure out how I will go about receiving mails??

I have checked my /var/mail/ folder but there’s nothing there except a file called root.

What have I missed here?
