Why won't email work on my droplet?

Posted July 7, 2015 4.9k views

Yesterday I set up a droplet using the MediaWiki application template. Everything works fine until I try to send a confirmation email, when I do I get an error about php mail not working.

Any help would be appreciated.

You have to set up your MediaWiki with an SMTP server.

Their own wiki has a helpful manual on how to do this with Google’s servers.
