My server is now refusing handshake with amazon ses, after moving over to php7 and getting SSL. Here's the error I'm getting while sending any mail from the server:-

Code:
Zend_Mail_Protocol_Exception: Email to admin@crazyengineers.com failed: Connection timed out - library/Zend/Mail/Protocol/Abstract.php:277

I hope you get this email."

  }
}
What exactly could be the problem?

Got it fixed with help from hosts. It was the nasty fire'WALL' that was blocking the mails.

I've already put up a wall on the border of my server. Bruwahahaha. :D
