I’ve spent all morning setting up a Discourse forum only to find the new droplets IP is blacklisted.
So all my user’s new account emails goes to their Spam folders … wonderful.

Really pissed. Can’t you check your IP’s against blacklists before reassigning them.
I’ll have to start all over again with a new droplet.
… and I’m not spending months trying to delist … why the hell should I?
My forum is dead before it started.

Aaaarrrrrrggggghhhh … hate you Digital Ocean this sucks.

Why are you sending e-mail from a shared IP space instead of using a service like Sendgrid?
