Registration emails showing as sent, but not received

Hello, We are testing a new site and have upgraded from EE3 to EE4 in the process. On the new site, which is presently set to a www2 subdomain hosted at Dreamhost, shows that the registration emails were sent, but we have not received them in any various email accounts (we checked the SPAM folders as well). The site’s general contact form is confirmed as working.

We are only using the default message templates and for the Email Registration Approved Template, the TO is being sent to [PRIMARY_REGISTRANT_EMAIL] and the FROM is set to [CO_EMAIL].

For deliverability issues we recommend using a transactional email service and have some listed here:
