I am a hosting reseller and have been selling cpanel hosting for long now.

It makes our work easier and our servers are maintained by the hosting provider.

I got introduced to digital ocean through my programmer who said it is much better.

I am having transition issues from cpanel to digital ocean style

though i have installed a whm/cpanel on my digital ocean account but i am facing some issues like not being able to send email - emails are bouncing.

can i change my OS after I created the droplet

Pls advise how i can transition smoothly :-)

Hi @webkuteer,

You can’t change your OS once your Droplet is created however you can fix the issue with your mails.

In order to provide you with a pinpoint answer how to resolve your e-mail issues, can you provide us with the headers of your bounce back?

Most probably the error is related to a closed port, using port 25 for mails.
