Fair warning to anyone trying to setup Discourse through Digital Ocean
Apparently Digital Ocean blocks packets out on known email ports for new accounts. So if you were brought to Digital Ocean in order to use Discourse, be aware of this if you have a new account. This may save some newer linux users a headache if they don't know exactly how to ask professor google about this problem. I have opened a support ticket and have not received a reply back yet. I have another DigitalOcean account and tested the telnet out on a droplet there, it works fine. Keep in mind you will still be racking up a charge every hour while they sort out there support tickets, really could use a live support system. Namecheap has a pretty good example of how to do it correctly.
