Hi @techietech,

In order to use SMTP with DigitalOcean, you’ll need to install such a service. I’ll recommend using Postfix for that matter. Luckily, DigitalOcean have a really good guide on how to install and configure it - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-postfix-on-ubuntu-18-04

If you don’t want to use Postfix, then I’ll recommend checking out Exim, it’s really popular if not as popular as Postfix and it will get the job done.
