Hey @fansteinr, thanks for the question! Those emails are no longer sent after we updated our root password process one year ago to allow users to set their own root password or use an SSH key. Emails were not sent previously if you created a key and now if you create your own root password, there is no need to send the root credentials.

If you need to regain access, you can always reset the password: https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/droplets/resources/reset-root-password/

I hope this helps!
