Not Able to connect to gmail SMTP

Hi, I am not able to connect to Gmail SMTP from my droplet, After searching for some time, i saw a post like, digitalocean needs to enable it after some manual verification of account, so i have raised a ticket, Ticket#553217, its been almost 2 days i have raised the ticket, and there is no response for the ticket, so please let me know, how do i contact digital ocean support team or any other alternative to use gmail SMTP. I need it on very urgent basis for my deployment.

DigitalOcean are blocking IPv6 SMTP access because they say IPv6 whitelists and blacklists that prevent spam aren’t working properly (see article 'Does DigitalOCean block SMTP access?"). Instead use IPv4 and you’re fine.

I recently got the same problem. I can not talk with server gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com too. When I try to do it, I got:

telnet gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com 25 Trying 108.177.119.27… Trying 2a00:1450:4013:c00::1a… telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Network is unreachable

Someone can help me?
