I can receive but I can not send emails. HELP!

I can receive but I can not send emails. I already changed port 25 to 2525 because I use GoogleCloudPlatform.

I am using this guide:
"SETUP EXTERNAL SMTP ON GOOGLE CLOUD PLATFORM (GCP)"

this is my log:

    try this, edit /etc/postfix/main.cf:

    smtpd_data_restrictions = reject_unauth_pipelining
  • add those lines to the file but it does not work.

    i change the port in the file /etc/postfix/master.cf, to 2525 but continue using the default 25. any ideas?

    this is email log:

  • Hello!

    If you have followed this guide https://blog.cyberpanel.net/2018/05/30/setup-external-smtp-on-google-cloud-platform-gcp/

    Since GCP discourage email sending, you need to set up your mail server somewhere else, and that mail server should be listening on port 2525. (This is not your GCP server, it should be a remote server)

    Then you can follow the normal procedure to create an email account on this server, once you are done setting up, you can use the credentials in your application to send emails.
