How do I configure the mail sending and receiving? In ZPanel I created mailbox adm@example.com Now I need to configure The Bat to specify smtp and pop3 server. What will be these data? Do I need to control panel digitalocean under DNS for my domain to point the MX record? If Yes, what for domain example.com specify the record?

I too will be hosting multiple sites on a single droplet, and I am unsure of what the hostname should be so emails will send successfully from my rails application. The logs simply show “There was an error delivering an inquiry confirmation: Connection refused - connect(2)”.
