No activation email Elastic Email

Hi

first of all : sorry for my bad english . i’m not a native speaker.

I installed discourse on my root server

i have/had some problems with the subdomain discourse.mydomain.de1 … but know it works …more or less

i choosen elastic email because my installationguide told me that. :slight_smile:

i don’t get a activation email

discourse-doctor show me this

==================== YML SETTINGS ====================
DISCOURSE_HOSTNAME=discourse.mydomain.de
SMTP_ADDRESS=smtp.elasticemail.com
DEVELOPER_EMAILS=REDACTED 
SMTP_PASSWORD=REDACTED 
SMTP_PORT=2525
SMTP_USER_NAME=myusername@googlemail.com
LETSENCRYPT_ACCOUNT_EMAIL=REDACTED 

==================== MAIL TEST ====================
For a robust test, get an address from http://www.mail-tester.com/
Sending mail to REDACTED  . . 
Testing sending to test-q78wb@mail-tester.com using myusername@googlemail.com:mypassword@smtp.elasticemail.com:2525.
SMTP server connection successful.
Sending to test-q78wb@mail-tester.com. . . 
Mail accepted by SMTP server.
-------------------------------------------------------
If you do not receive the message, check your SPAM folder
or test again using a service like http://www.mail-tester.com/.

If the message is not delivered it is not a problem with Discourse.

Check the SMTP server logs to see why it failed to deliver the message.

i have no idea where i found a “log file” at elastic email …

i used an other emailprovider
Unfortunately i dont understand why it doesn’t work with elasticemail.
The support was very nice and tried hard to help me, but … in german we say : “er ist nicht die hellste Kerze auf der Torte!”
