Why is email so hard?


So the entire installation is so smooth and amazing… until I get to the email setup.

I have looked and troubleshooted for hours but have come up with nothing.

Does anyone know of a stupid proof guide on how to setup the email?

At first I tried setting up a Postfix server and that didn’t go well. I also tried some of those email services but got stuck.

I really love the look of Discourse and I want to use it.

So if someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

I’m using an Amazon AWS Ubuntu 14.04 LTS instance.

Try MailGun or one of the other free email services we recommend at great length in the docs and in the test email.
