Hey there!

We generally don’t recommend sending email from your Droplets:

But to answer your question, it depends on your OS and what type of mail application you’re setting up. For example, on Ubuntu you have these options: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/email-services.html

If you want to use G Suite with your Google domains, see this guide: https://domains.google/getting-started/email/
