(mootzoo) #1

Trying to install discourse.

Domain is hosted my Namecheap.
Using Namecheap email hosting. address is set to admin@mydomain.com
Using Digital Ocean for VPS Hosting.
Email between me@gmail.com - admin@mydomain.com work fine (both ways)
Not receiving the email from the Discourse install. Cannot activate.

in the app.yml:
developer emails admin@mydomain.com
smtp server: mail.privateemail.com
Port 587
admin@mydomain.com
mypassword (that i login with on the web email hosting)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Are you sure that the mail server password is the same as your login password…?

For namecheap it isn’t, no.

A good step to test any mail account is to connect it to mail.app, windows mail or similar.

first time setting up a system like this…and I didn’t have a clear picture on how it all works.

figured it out, using zoho mail.
