Hi @eleetgeeks,

It’s possible you you need to allow outgoing TCP traffic on port 25

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT

Additionally, you can further read this DigitalOcean article explaining more about Iptables and what they are - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/iptables-essentials-common-firewall-rules-and-commands
