I just setup a new discourse droplet… entered my smtp server from godaddy… and confirmed these settings are correct and working in outlook.

I can access the droplet here: http://188.166.65.15/
but when i register and i never receive the activation email.

Hi @genghismama

Run this command to see if you can connect to your SMTP:

telnet your.smtp-server.com 25

If you cannot connect, then you need to create a ticket with Support in the control panel and ask to un-block SMTP, since new accounts on DigitalOcean has SMTP blocked to prevent spam.
