Setting up Email for First Time

I am a new user on this fantastic service called Nextcloud. I am not a techie savvy, I am eager to learn and share the value proposition of Nextcloud. I made a decision to move to Nextcloud because I would like to detach from Microsoft and integrate more to Linux environment.

I bought a domain from namecheap. Then I followed steps from two youtube streamers (techut and linux experiment) in order to set up Nextcloud. The problem that I have is that I can’t set up an mail address. Here is an screenshot on the problem when I am trying to set up my email address:

I tried to search any manual for rookies like me about how to set up everything related to nextcloud but I did not find anything easy to follow.

My goals are:

  • Set up an email address.
  • Set up best practices regarding nextcloud’s installation or configuration
  • Idem with security and privacy.
  • Keep learning about Nextcloud in order to promote it to friend and colleges in my country.

Thank you very much.
Best regards,
