Do you see any output when you run this command when SSH'd into your server?

telnet 465

If you see the following when you run that command:

$ telnet 465
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.

That's good, it means your server can connect to port 465 of

If you instead don't see anything and it just hangs at:

$ telnet 465

that means you should ask DigitalOcean to open up outgoing SMTP from your server.
