I have needed to do the exact same before. I found a great open source tool called Mail in a box. It requires a little bit of setup but it is documented fairly well and I believe they even have a video tutorial. Might be worth checking it out -github.com/mail-in-a-box/mailinabox

Very interesting, I will definitely check this out!
Did you install this on the same server as your other applications or a dedicated VPS for mail only?

On a dedicated VPS. Depending on your needs, a small $5 or $10 digitalocean droplet will suffice

Thanks again! I will try this and if I get it working and has everything that I was expecting I am going with this option.

Thanks for the mailinabox tip. Launched my on AWS and after a little fighting with security groups and DNS, it is receiving email.

I wanted email on my own domain without using a hosting provider and this solves that. Thanks!
