Separate web hosting and mail server (CPanel)

Currently I am having problems with email service on the same host as my website, so I decided to move whole email server to another linux DigitalOcean server but keep the domain name?

My current hosting uses CPanel, how do I host email server on my DigitalOcean Linux Droplet and how should I configure Domain Zone Settings so mails are still pointing to the domain name?

Thanks in advance!

You would need to setup an @ record for something like "mail" pointed to the DO droplet and then update your MX record to mail.yourdomain.com
