Email client setup


#1

Hi, I’ve followed your tutorial on setting up an email stack and VimBadmin. I created an email account for a FQDN that I have on this droplet.

When I try to setup this account on my email client (Mail.app) I cannot get the settings right, or perhaps I haven’t fully configured email on the server

In Mail.app I’m using

incoming server   mail.domainname.com
user              me@domainname.com
port              993, SSL, password authentication

outgoing server    gpo.domainname.com
user               me@domainname.com
port               465, SSL, password authentication

HI @jimlongo, Make sure following things.

  1. DNS record for mail.domainname.com and gpo.domainname.com is pointed to your droplet IP. or you can just you domainname.com also.
  2. Your mail ports, 993 and 465 are open on server.
  3. Use our mail testing tutorial to check mail server is working or not. https://rtcamp.com/tutorials/mail/server/testing/
