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


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
