I am trying to connect to an external smtp server from a droplet (NYC3) without success:

$> telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 25
Trying xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

Other servers in another area (SFO1) work without problems.

Can you help me?

thank you very much

You may need to contact DigitalOcean support - they don't make it obvious to a customer AFAIK if SMTP is blocked on an account but it could be a block on their end.
