Hi @pavankadam

If you are using a new account with DigitalOcean, then SMTP is sometimes blocked. Create a ticket with Support in the control panel to get un-blocked.

But for setting up a simple messaging system in WordPress, I would recommend that you look at https.// with the WordPress plugin

Did you install a MTA?
