  • Try this tutorial link on using google’s smtp server. If that doesn’t help, then it sounds like you want your DNS entries for MX (for mail) and CNAME (for web and the rest) to point to different places?

    A little-known feature about Gmail and Google Apps email is Google's portable SMTP server. Instead of having to manage your own outgoing mail server on your DigitalOcean VPS, you can simply configure Google's SMTP server settings into whatever script or program you wish to send email from.
