I am having trouble getting mail to work. I am new to Unix and my friend help me setup almost all of my new webserver at Digital Ocean.
I followed this guide, but I skipped the apart about changing root to root_on-lnas. I dont need more info, root is fine.
I currently have my mail with my domain, shayconcepts.com, with outlook for free and that works just fine. I would like to get outgoing mail through my server working since my contact form has stopped working.
Here are my settings in the ssmtp.conf file - it has the permissions 755 i think
I get the error send-mail: Cannot open smtp-mail.outlook.com:587
