Default web config question about email

I have a question about the section at "beginning aspnet 4.5" book about the e mail settings at the webconfig file.

the e mail recipient's address is not a yahoo address but a personal domain something like www.example.com
what should the mailsettings be?
below I copy and paste how it is now for a yahoo recipient address:

<smtp deliveryMethod="Network" from="Webmaster &lt;dksellou@yahoo.com&gt;">
<network enableSsl="true" host="smtp.mail.yahoo.com" password="123456" userName="nick23@yahoo.com"/>

for example what the host should be? what about the enableSsl?
Please advice and thanks

One more thing:
I will use an external hosting party (godaddy.com)
should I contact them and ask them what SMTP server they use?

Just to summarize:
My site will be hosted in external hosting party (godaddy)
the e mail recipient that I want to have when a customer submits the contact form is not a yahoo or gmail BUT a personal e mail, for example info@dksellou.com

No, it does not matter what the recipient email address is. The only config that is important, is the host SMTP server that will be doing the emailing. Since you are using a godady host yes you would contact them to insure your hosting package gives you an smpt server to bounce emails from, and getting the the required information to login to it if needed.
