Unable to get SendMail to work.
I set up my mx record to be "mail" with priority one. I am able to successfully ping email@example.com I've followed this documentation: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/sendmail I then: $ sendmail -vt < test-message.txt The output looks like this (please note that I changed some of the stuff to hide my droplet name, domain name, and username. I've cap-locked those parts to make it obvious. WARNING: local host name (DROPLET) is not qualified; see cf/README: WHO AM I? TEST@EMAIL.COM...
