Trying to install discourse.

Using Namecheap email hosting. address is set to
Using Digital Ocean for VPS Hosting.
Email between - work fine (both ways)
Not receiving the email from the Discourse install. Cannot activate.

in the app.yml:

smtp server:
Port 587

Any help would be appreciated.


Please list your results from every step of the email troubleshooting howto topic.

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, 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.

thanks for the help.

What was the problem?
