Question

How to open TCP Port 25

  • Posted June 20, 2022
  • Email

As i was following on DigitalOcean tutos i did find that in order to open TCP port i need to ask it directly from Support! I’m running 3 websites under DigitalOcean droplets, that highly need outgoing emails to notify buyers and verify registration. I’m using Digital Ocean for more than 60days and have serious business that i can’t give up.

Best Regards Cigi

Hello there,

I’ll recommend you to use ports 465 or 587 instead of using port 25 to send your emails.

You can also use a third-party mail provider like SendGrid in order to avoid issues like this one. I’ll also recommend checking this article:

Hi @anassoulaaim,

It is possible that port 25 is closed for new accounts. This is something DigitalOcean has been doing to reduce spam on the network.

To qualify for the ability to send out emails, new accounts are required to wait 60 days before a request for removing the restriction could be raised. Once your account has reached 60 days of stable use, you could reach out to the DigitalOcean support team so they could look into this for you:

In the meantime, you could instead use ports 465 or 587.

Hope that helps!
