Hi All! Is there an MX Record like the MX record of Gmail for DigitalOcean Integration? I already create a Webhosting for the domain I bought in Shopify and I want to create an email here in DigitalOcean which has the domain that I bought, for example upon creating, it can’t send or received email. I have to input the MX Record of DO to the DNS settings of my domain. I hope someone could help me!

Here’s the sample image of what I’m looking for:

Hi there @tristansalonga,

Note that DigitalOcean does not provide a managed mail server solution out of the box. In order for you to use DigitalOcean as your email provider, you need to actually set up a Droplet and configure it as your email server. Then you can use that Droplet’s IP address and set up your DNS so that you would receive emails.

You can take a look at this article here on how to configure a mail server using Postfix, Dovecot, MySQL and SpamAssassin:

Hope that this helps!
