Let’s say I host a few sites like example.com, test.net, and site.org. And they’re all wordpress sites and on one single droplet.

What app(s) do I need to install so that I can send e-mails from example.com to new users of that site and also send e-mails from test.net to new users of that site and also send e-mails from site.org to new users of that site?

Hey there,

Running a mail server on your own is not always an easy process. We have an article/tutorial on this here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/why-you-may-not-want-to-run-your-own-mail-server

If you’ve read that and still want to run a mail server on your own, I would suggest checking out Mailinabox. We have a great tutorial on setting it up here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-run-your-own-mail-server-with-mail-in-a-box-on-ubuntu-14-04

When setting up a web site or application under your own domain, it is likely that you will also want a mail server to handle the domain's incoming and outgoing email. While it is possible to run your own mail server, it is often not the best option for a variety of reasons. This guide will cover many of the reasons that you may not want to run your own mail server, and offer a few alternatives.
