Send email using postfix

I am trying to send an email to my gmail using postfix. I am using windows 10 Ubuntu 18.04 bash shell. I have tried the website tutorials and was unsuccessful.

I am still unsuccessful. The only problem I ran into was with the command "systemctl restart postfix.service" (System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.). I also have to use sudo before the commands in the tutorial.

The command worked but I was unable to send an email successfully. Do I need to be root to send an email?

You don't need to be root to send email.

What diagnostics are you getting when you try to send email?
