    As you may know, Vultr block SMTP port for new user. I'm student and use PayPal (verified with gift card) and have no real CC.

    So I change every Wordpress notifications to local mail, like "root@vultr.guest" and "user@vultr.guest".

    I can read it via SSH, but I can't read HTML email properly. So I thinking to use webmail like Horde/SquirrelMail to read every incoming mail ("user@vultr.guest"), or maybe read it with mail client like Thunderbird. Is this possible?

    What do you mean with the root problem?
    I don't want to unblock SMTP, but how to read mailx incoming mail from webmail instead of SSH.

    unfortunately, that would be something you'd be on your own figuring out. But I do recommend just unblocking SMTP so you can forward root emails via /etc/aliases to a real email address that you can view via web mail
