Hi @reimajina,

Looking at at the provided logs, It seems you are trying to reach gmail on port 25. By default for new accounts, DigitalOcean blocks this port as it’s used for malicious activities. You can either configure Postfix to use port 465/587 or try and contact DigitalOcean’s Support. They should be able to see if the port can be unblocked for you.

You can reach them at this link here:
