Hi, after a lot of research I noticed that Digitalocean has blocked port 25 for my account. I installed Postal SMTP Mail Server on my VPS but it shows an error when sending emails.

I opened a ticket for it 3 days ago but didn’t get a reply yet.😓

It shows an error when I try to connect to another SMTP. This means that the outgoing port 25 is blocked.

Shows this error in CLI:

root@mail:~# telnet digipress.xyz 25
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

Shows this Error in my Application:

No SMTP servers were available for gmail.com. Tried gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com, alt1.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com, alt2.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com, alt3.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com, and alt4.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com

Plz open outgoing port 25 for my account.

Hey @vincentMantaRay,

Indeed port 25 is closed by default for new accounts.

Do you have a ticket number from when you contacted our support team so that I can get this followed up for you?

Hope that helps!
