Problems getting mail to run


I’m a newbee und started with my own server in the last days. All works fine, but I have a problem to get mail to run.

My setup:
hestiacp 1.6.8 standard installation
Oracle VM instance with ubuntu 20.04
All the necessary ports are enabled

Problem 1 - Wordpress
I installed Wordpress with “Quick install app”. Works fine, but I don’t receive mail e.g. for password reset

Problem 2 - Mail Domain
I configured a Mail Domain “” and made all dns settings and so an. I’m able to receive mails, but sending don’t works.There is no error message, but the mails don’t reach the recipient

I tried to edit the php.ini with sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/exim4 -t
and restart Apache but this don’t work

Do you have an idea to resolve this issue without an external smtp relay?

Thank you very much

Oracle blocks by default the mail port.

Can’t do anything about it

You mean in general?
That means it doesn’t do anything if I enable the port in the instance?

I found it:
Is it possible to configure port 465 or 587 in hestiacp instead?

You can set up an smtp relay in combination with sendinblue, smpt2go or Amazon ses

I already did that besides :upside_down_face:

Sendinblue works perfect.

Thanks for help :smiley:
