Need password for new email alias for my domain

I followed this tutorial to register a new email alias/ address with Namecheap and everything went well:

https://kb.mailbox.org/display/BMBOKBEN/Using+e-mail+addresses+of+your+domain

Now I want to check my email but I realized that I don't know what my password is.

I search high and low on the forums and could find nothing. (so perhaps it's very obvious. But it's new to me.)

Thanks in advance for your help.

On my search to figure this out, I came across an admin panel - is this something I would need to access in order to set up a custom domain alias with a password?

Mailbox.org support contacted me with a solution: use my email client, Thunderbird, to set up a new identity within my mailbox.org account.

I did not need a unique password for my domain name email because I did not need to set it up as a new email account in Thunderbird. Instead, the solution was to add my domain name email as an Identity under my mailbox.org account in thunderbird.

This is a good tutorial:

Ground control to Major Tom... tom tom tom.....

Welp, I am able to send using this setup (Thunderbird Identity) but not able to receive. In the Manage Identites section I see that the Outgoing Server (SMTP) is set up, but there is no incoming. Mayday, yadda yadda. Over and out.
