Hey guys, I’ve tried countless tutorials so far with no success. I’m trying to understand how this all works. I have 2 domains. First domain(hosted outside DO) uses google apps to send and receive emails and the other one(hosted on DO) does not have any emails.
On my other host I have all MX correctly filled and everything is working as expected when sending or receiving emails.
On DO, this new domain will host a wordpress blog and I want it to use the @domain1.com to send or receive emails. ( I don’t want to pay extra $5 to google just for the blog). I don’t know if this structure is doable or not.
Anyway, if it is doable? How should I configure my mx records and stuff?
From what I gathered from other topics, I need something called sendmail? Other tutorials assume this is installed by default but I’m running ubuntu 14.04 and I don’t have it installed.
Any tutorials for a completely email config dumb person?
