Using sendmail in digitalocean ubuntu server

July 5, 2015 25.4k views

Hi, today I’m using godaddy vps, but thinking to change to digital ocean.
One problem I have faced is sending emails from digital ocean server.

To send email using godaddy I simply configure my SMTP to:

My python script do this:

    conn = SMTP('')
        conn.sendmail(sender, destination, message)

How can I do this in digital ocean?
