SMTP Email on droplet - wordpress
I am at a loss after going through different tutorials/set-ups and checks.
I have created a new Wordpress ubuntu droplet for a subdomain. The subdomain needs to send emails. I’m at a loss if this is a droplet issue or a website or cofig at Sendinblue.
- Installed SendinBlue plugin
- Installed WP Log Plugin
- Installed WP SMTP configured to Sendinblue.
On Sendinblue I have added the email to be verified. Then I have also set up/checked postfix in Ubuntu for emails. I have tested the postfix with ‘echo “This is the body of the email” | mail -s “This is the subject line” my-email. and it sends the email.
However, it feels like a SMTP issue from the server.I’ve tested on the Wordpress site using WP MAIL Smtp to defualt to PHP and send a test, no test is sent.
I have configured it to Sendinblue and no email is sent.
On top I have ensure the subdomain is authenticated on Sendinblues website as well.
I have allowed the ports to be open using:" sudo ufw allow 25/tcp
Rule added (v6)
I can see the test emails being created in WP log, but not sent.
What could I be missing or screwed up that’s stopping the emails being sent within the droplet?
