Hosting Google domain on droplet, not receiving emails from Digital Ocean.

DigitalOcean DNS Email Ubuntu


I recently set up a domain via google domains and set up DO to handle the config for the domain. I receive emails from my personal Google, Yahoo, and iCloud email addresses in the google mail app, however I am not receiving emails from DO (email change, droplet root password reset, account password reset, etc).

Has anybody else experienced this issue? Have you found a solution?

Thank you

  • So the domain was purchased through Google? And you are trying to receive email

    If so, (1) where is the DNS managed (2) where do you nameservers point to and (3) what do your MX records look like?
