    As the title says, how do you create email accounts via SSH? (no Control panels)

    I have postfix and mail server configured, I have Dovecot installed too.

    Now I want to use my email client like Thunderbird to receive/send emails, and I haven't created any mailboxes yet.

    okay.. I did read that.

    But I noticed that the user I created with simple useradd myusername command got my emails working. I can easily send/receive mails from my pop3 client.

    One thing is that, just like I have switched from FTP to SFTP, how do I start using something secure for emails too? Currently enabling "Secure Authentication" option doesn't work for me. There are options like TLS, SSL etc. How do I begin using them and secure my emails too?
