Yes, it should point to your droplet’s hostname/PTR record.

@ Viktor, <br>Thanks for reply and clear instructions. Question remaining for me is: <br>does this mx record: “mail.yourdomain.com” need to be the same as the FQDN of the actual server (or VPS in this case)? <br>Mine says: server.yourdomain.com whereas mx and other records point to: mail.yourdomain.com, all on same IP. Would this cause redmail not receiving mai?? <br>Thanks for answers!

I’m posting this just because someone might read this in the future. <br>I was facing the same problem I only could send email but I couldn’t receive emails. <br>The soloution is very simple! Follow this steps: <br>1. Log in to your Digital Ocean account. <br>2. Frol the list on the left side choose DNS. <br>3. Navigate on your preffered domain name and click it. <br>4. Push Add Record button. <br>5. Select an MX. <br>6. Where it says enter hostname wright mail.yourdomain.com. (don’t forget the dot in the end!) <br>7. Where it says enter priority type 10 <br> <br>That’s it!! wait for few minutes and your email is working!!!
