Email just refuses to work


#1

I’ve been trying for days now to integrate Discourse into the Digital Ocean account, and I just know it’s something extremely simple, but I’ve tried 10 different ways and the email just never sends.
The following is the information (minus pass of course) into it and then the cpanel email information. If someone has any ideas what I input wrong, please tell me. Thank you.

Enter the email address to use for the Discourse admin account (ex. user@example .org) admin@community.gamermeld.com
Enter the domain or subdomain pointed to this Discourse instance (ex. forum.exam ple.org): community.gamermeld.com
Enter the SMTP server to use to send email (ex: smtp.example.org): community.gamermeld.com
SMTP Port (default 587):2525
SMTP Username (ex. user@example.org): admin@community.gamermeld.com
SMTP Password:
Thanks! Your Discourse instance is now being configured…this can take a few minutes…

Non-SSL Settings
(This is NOT recommended.)
Username: admin@community.gamermeld.com

IMAP Port: 143
POP3 Port: 110
Outgoing Server: community.gamermeld.com
SMTP Port: 2525
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

Secure SSL/TLS Settings

IMAP Port: 993

Thank you for any help.

My guess is that the SMTP server won’t allow you to send from your Digital Ocean server and instead wants you to connect from wherever cPanel is running.

I don’t understand that though. How do I fix it?

You’ll need to talk to whomever runs that server.
