can't ping api.sendgrid.com from my droplet
I created a droplet recently (Ubuntu Docker 18.06.1~ce~3 on 18.04).
And I realize emails couldn’t be sent by my application.
I’m using SendGrid’s API.
It works perfectly from my local machine.
I can’t even ping api.sendgrid.com from my droplet.
PING api.sendgrid.com (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data.
— api.sendgrid.com ping statistics —
328 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 335312ms
It works well if I try locally:
$ ping api.sengrid.com
PING api.sengrid.com (126.96.36.199): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmpseq=0 ttl=50 time=85.898 ms

64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=2 ttl=50 time=112.295 ms
Why is that endpoint not reachable ?
I tried other endpoints without issues.
