This is very helpful. I ended up going with digital ocean and getting all the way to the “Congratulations!” and no matter what I do I can’t figure out how to get it to send me an email. I stripped my email DNS and accounts from my godaddy run domain, and ended up trying three different services (mailjet, sparkpost, and one other), and for the love of God I’m confused. I finally managed to get all the DNS’s right (I think) and then had it send me an email…but now…low and behold I don’t know where the email goes? Am I supposed to create ANOTHER email account for receiving emails? With mailjet I don’t see any place where replies to email are forwarded?
So…I think I have the digitalocean thing down, but I’m just not able to get past the email situation. Anyone have a suggestion for a REAL EASY email solution. I’m not interested in sending out millions of emails… but even if…I just want the thing to actually let me set up an admin account.
What am I missing?
