Is there an SMTP restriction on one-click WordPress droplet, we are having issues sending email and came across an article that states new accounts have some restrictions. If so, how do we get that restriction lifted!

Hey, @biomedicalpharmslabs

All Wordpress one-click droplets hshould ave Postfix, a mail server/MTA, installed. You can verify that it’s running by looking at the output of:

sudo ps wwaux | grep postfix | grep -v grep

Try running the following command on your droplet:

nc -z smtp.gmail.com 25

If it does not output the following, it’s possible that SMTP is blocked on your droplet. In that case, please file a support ticket and the support team will take care of it. Thanks!

Connection to smtp.gmail.com port 25 [tcp/smtp] succeeded!

Let me know how it goes.
