How to set up wiki.js droplet to use Google mail

hey there, i have a wiki.js droplet set up here @ DO. my dns is with cloudlfare & i’ve created a sub domain (wiki.domain.com) & simply pointed it to my DO droplet’s IP address. this is working just fine, but there’s no mail service, so users can’t reset their wiki.js password. it’s not a biggie, but i’d like to provide that functionality preferably. i have a paid google works account. where/what/how do i go about setting all this up? many thanks, Json
