Wordpress domain with DO hosting - trouble with domain email (using google mail)

Hi there,

I have a domain name that I bought from Wordpress, along with domain I also purchased an email address, which uses google mail.

I recently moved my hosting of this site to DigitalOcean, I did this by changing my nameservers and setting up the domain in my droplet, this is all fine and the site is now using the correct nameservers.

However the mail account I bought with the domain no longer works - I can’t receive emails, I can send them but I’m not sure if they are evening going through.

I didn’t think this would be an issue, as the domain and email are still registered on Wordpress but apparently it is. Does anyone know why this would be, and what I need to do about it?

Just added the MX records, seems to be working now. Is that all I need? Thanks for your response.
