Hi there @hemanthhr4cs,

In order to receive emails, you would need to add an MX record for your domain name and point it to the Droplet.

What you could do is make the following setup:

  • Add an A record for mail.yourdomain.com and point it to your Droplet IP
  • Then add an MX record for your main domain and point it to mail.yourdomain.com

That way when someone sends you an email it would be forwarded to your Droplet.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
