Hi @umutguncan,

You’ll need to install an e-mail service. Having said that, I’ll recommend using a third party e-mailing service. DigitalOcean by default tend to block port 25 to prevent spam sending of e-mails and it might prove harder for you to configure an e-mailing service than just use one free third party service.

If you decide to go with the third party service, best way would be to just search for free services in google.

If you decide to use your droplet for it, I’ll recommend using postfix and checking out the following DigitalOcean tutorial which explains how to configure it :
