I am not getting WordPress transactional emails, I did use the DigitalOcean droplet and installed “OpenLiteSpeed WordPress 1-Click” and all emails from WordPress does not send for admin email registered, not sure if there is an extra step I should take to set up emails or it should be sent normally?

I know that port 25 may be blocked in DigitalOcean

Hello,

What I could suggest here is using an SMTP plugin for your WordPress site.

That way you will be able to specify an SMTP server with authentication which your emails would be going through. You could for example use SendGrid SMTP settings. This would drastically increase the delivery rate of your emails as well compared to using plain PHP mail.

I’ve been using this plugin for a while now and it works very well: Easy WP SMTP.

Hope that this helps!

you can check log file and see what it says
