Cant get WP Mail SMTP plugin to Wordpress Lightsail to work.


Trying to configure WP Mail SMTP plugin to Wordpress Lightsail but no success. I guess the problem is the firewall. I'm using an "other" SMPT, not within AWS at port 25. Enter image description here. The SMTP is working. Is there some problem with port 25, or am i opening the port wrong?

All i want to do is to have my server send a message when it wants/needs.

I hope this helps!
