How to Set up an Email on VPS Hosting?

Email is one of the widely used mediums for communication with your clients. No matter what type of hosting you use for your website, you’ll need to set up your email account.

If you are using VPS hosting, then here is the procedure to set up the email. Let’s discuss in detail:

Step 1: Use the credentials of VPS hosting to log in to your account.

Step 2: Install Postfix. It is an application available free for users.

Step 3: Configure the settings of PostFix.

You can use the following line of code:


sudo vim /etc/postfix/main.cf

#Uncomment the following lines

myhostname = yourhostname.com

 myorigin = $myhostname

 inet_interfaces = localhost

 inet_protocols = ipv4

 mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost

 mynetworks_style = host


Step 4: Initiate your server.

Step 5: Send a test email

<pre> service postfix start </pre>

Test email sending from your server

<pre> echo “test” | mail -s “Test mail “ youremailid@yourserver.com </pre>

This command is only one of the ways to send the test emails. An alternative method is connecting your email service to the server.

Step 6: You’ll receive the test email. It means that your email has been connected with your VPS hosting.
