I’m using wordpress with Digitalocean server and domain is from NameCheap.
About week ago my wordpress stopped sending contact form submits to my email. Before that it worked fine.
If I fill the contact form then the website loads about 60 or 90 seconds and then shows error … - try again later.
Now I tried many email providers to with my website stmp (, NameCheap, Gmail) and same story with all of them

What could be the problem and how to fix this?
