I found the solution

I have enabled the port 465 by running:

ufw allow out 465

But still telnet 465 gives timeout and I cannot send the email. I can send the email from the local machine. Is this solved?? Any tips?

My ufw status verbose is as following: WARN: / is group writable! Status: active Logging: on (low) Default: deny (incoming), allow (outgoing), deny (routed) New profiles: skip

465 (v6)                   ALLOW IN    Anywhere (v6)

465                        ALLOW OUT   Anywhere
465 (v6)                   ALLOW OUT   Anywhere (v6)```

Same issue here. Can’t ping or send emails via Zoho SMTP. This is a big issue and has been troubling us since weeks. Most probably digitalocean has blocked outgoing mails via Zoho…

Hello Guys, I have the same problem. I’m trying send e-mail from my application (PHPMailer) :

# telnet 465
Time Out
# openssl s_client -starttls smtp -crlf -connect 

What error are you receiving? you need to test port 465 availability like this

$ openssl s_client -starttls smtp -crlf -connect

Regarrrrrrrrrrds, pyrate ;0

We need some more information, also Zoho requires the use of SSL when connecting. What kind of application or environment? You might not be using SSL in your connection.
