I cannot connect from my Ubuntu Droplet to my external SMTP ( GMAIL ) server in a Nodejs application.

I was able to connect it from my personal machine but not from the droplet.

Can anyone who have an idea show me some light.

Hi @naveenmeher07

Please create a ticket in Support via the control panel and request SMTP to be unblocked.
It’s a protection that is activated on some new accounts to prevent spam.
