Im here for years now, please allow me port 25 connections

I use Amazon SES for emails, but sometimes I need my DO server as a backup, which needs port 25 working alright, but for gmail, I always get this Connection time out:

postqueue -p
-Queue ID- --Size-- ----Arrival Time---- -Sender/Recipient-------
14BA142B5AB     1181 Fri May 10 20:32:44
(connect to[]:25: Connection timed out)

Could you please, allow me to work with it? Thank you!

Heya @diegplblog,

I’ll recommend contacting DigitalOcean support and writing your case there. We in the community don’t have access to your account and as such won’t be able to assist you with this :(

Hope that helps! - KFSys.
