Hi @info1681965606fde6e64f59ad

Depending on your account status with DigitalOcean, there might be a mail send-out block to prevent spam. You can contact Support via control panel to get it removed.

There’s currently no tutorial for Sendmail on Ubuntu, but you can have a look at this:

I would recommend that you use Postfix, which is a drop-in-replacement for Sendmail:
