Never thought I'd enjoy so much configuring a server on digital ocean. I should have become a sys admin LOL
Good news. Google has decided to rank down webpages with anoying pop-up/overlay windows. http://www.theverge.com/2016/8/23/12610890/google-search-punish-pop-ups-interstitial-ads
I just installed and configured sendmail and postfix on Ubuntu 14.04 - Digital Ocean. And it works, I can use php mail()! (happy) :D
I'd also recommend Spark Post for sending mail, you get 100,000 sends free per month and it's rock solid in terms of delivery. SendGrid is really good as well.
We had a Linux box at my old work that handled mail and it was a nightmare to work out why something didn't send. I'd always recommend using a third-party after that experience.

Definitely will use serverpilot on a "clean" project, it requires an unconfigured droplet as far as I gathered.
Spark Post and Sendgrid - will look into these, thanks for the tip! :)

Sparkpost, Sendgrid etc are awesome, and they plug easily into a CMS once setup.

I love the git exercises, very useful for learning new commands.
