Hello, @firstfortune

Could you please let me know if you’ve checked this tutorial:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-gmail-with-your-domain-on-digitalocean

It’s a really useful guide to send and receive email through your own custom domain is to use a third-party mail service.

Also can you please let me know what mail application you’re going to use to send your emails as well, so I can try to help you to configure this. I assume you’re going to use a mail client to send/receive your emails.
