Vanilla not sending emails after I moved my forum to digital ocean

I had vanilla forum on godaddy which I moved to digital ocean. I did a mysql dump and imported it in digitalocean droplet and copied my forum files. Everything is working fine except for two issues:

1- It is more sending emails for posts

2- I had to disable url_rewrite in config due to which index.php is appearing in each link, it doesn't work otherwise

I have installed sendmail, tried adding gmail smtp server but it doesn't work. If I add smtp server save the settings and refresh the page the mail setting page loses all the settings.

  • I had to enable mod_rewrite

    When I switched to DO from Bluehost, I had some domain specific email addresses I wanted to keep, and ended up using Zoho mail which is free for up to 10 domain addresses, and that works fine in Vanilla using the SMTP server option.

    Users on here strongly recommended against trying to run my own mail server.
