Email on GoDaddy and Port 25

I'm unable to set up email for BlogEngine on GoDaddy using SMTP port 25, and I can't switch to another port that I know will work (like 3535) because of the Medium Trust issue. Do I have any other options?

I have tried both the normal outgoing mail server ( with full user name and password, and the relay server that they suggest for programmatic use,, without user name and password. The former fails with an error; the latter appears to succeed but no email is delivered.

Thank you for any suggestions!

You could maybe use the Gmail SMTP server, that's what I use, it allows more emails per day then my host server, I have over 100 subscribers on my Newsletter.

check with godaddy support and let them know that you are not able to send emails.

As in my case i am also using godaddy mailing service and its working fine my settings are:

Port - 25

SMTP Server -

Yes, this is working for me now also, using port 25 and Since the emails were arriving almost an hour after they were sent, I didn't realize that it was in fact working.

Hard to believe that GoDaddy allows automated, unauthenticated outgoing email over the standard port!

Thanks, everyone.
