Today i try buy VPS cloud plan $40 per monthly for my wordpress website. Issue my VPS can't send SMTP with postmarkapp, i try contact support and them reply we only enable SMTP for VPS after 2 month (60days) using vps. In 2 months, what will I do with my website and my member can not activate?

This is common for VPS providers and new customers. You should use a mail service instead in the meantime. Mailgun and others have a very generous free tier (i.e. 10k emails per month for free) https://www.mailgun.com/pricing

Once you get the mail service set up, you will likely not even want to send your own mail until you outgrow the free tier.

  • I using mail service postmarkapp but not working! DO blocked it. bad VPS provinder

    • DO can't block a third party mail service. That is not the way this works.

      Your app connects to mail service -> mail service sends email.

      I think you have a configuration issue.
