You may need to set up SPF records which indicate your droplet is allowed to send email for your domain.

In general, if possible I recommend using a 3rd party SMTP service for small things like this rather than running a mail relay of your own. It is usually much less of a headache. Personally I used SendGrid which allows up to 12000 email sends per month for free.
