Great - adding the subdomain in Cloudron and setting up Amazon SES login for that fixed the issue so I can now both send (via SES) and receive emails (via a Zoho pop mail box), including reply by email mode.
Thanks for your advice everyone!

RE: Discourse and incoming email
Thanks for the advice! I managed to get inbound mail coming in now by setting up a subdomain and external POP mail box, which fixes an immediate problem regarding how we were planning to use the forum with specific category emails.
The main outstanding issue now with allowing incoming replies is that Cloudron outbound SMTP won't accept a "reply to" address that is a subdomain with plus addresses/VERPs (I guess both of these are separate issues).
I am trying Amazon SES as the SMTP server for the whole domain and will see if that solves the issue and report back.
Discourse and incoming email
I need incoming email to function on Discourse and it seems like there are two options:
- set up a POP3 inbox, which I can't do on Cloudron
- add this module for direct delivery of email, which I also can't do on Cloudron
At the moment I will have setup an external POP3 service and hope for the best. Would you consider including the direct email delivery module in future Discourse setups?
Any tips in the meantime from people who have got this to work?
