Hi there,

Have you tried specifying a username / password, ssl and/or port number in the web.config? Who's the administrator of the SMTP server on this IP address? Maybe they can provide you with the correct setup details?

I added this to the web.config file

Code:
 
<system.net>
        <mailSettings>
            <smtp deliveryMethod="Network"
                  from ="xxx xxx &lt; xxx@pctoolmanconsulting.com&gt;">
                <network enableSsl="false" userName="xxx@pctoolmanconsulting.com" port="25" password="xxxx" host="smtp.sercureserver.net"/>

            </smtp>
        </mailSettings>
I use GoDaddy for my hosting and email.

Maybe GoDaddy doesn't allow you to connect to a different server, or the server doesn't use port 25? Doesn't GoDaddy provide you with a SMTP server?

I switched the settings to use gmail and i still get the error message.

Code:
 <system.net>
        <mailSettings>
            <smtp deliveryMethod="Network"
                  from ="name &lt;xxx@gmail.com&gt;">
                <network enableSsl="true" host ="smtp.gmail.com" port="467" password="password" userName ="xxx@gmail.com"   />

            </smtp>
        </mailSettings>
    </system.net>
The error keeps pointing to this
Code:
 MailMessage myMessage = new MailMessage();
        myMessage.Subject = "Test Message";
        myMessage.Body = "Hello world, from Planet Wrox";
        myMessage.From = new MailAddress("xxx@gmail.com", "name");
        myMessage.To.Add(new MailAddress(xxx@gmail.com", "Receiver Name"));

        SmtpClient mySmtpClient = new SmtpClient();
        mySmtpClient.Send(myMessage);
Thanks

I think Gmail uses port 587. Take a look here: http://imar.spaanjaars.com/505/using...at-require-ssl for sample code that works with Gmail.

Hope this helps,

Imar

Can you show your web.config file? It works for me with the code from my article so if you use the same settings, your network may be blocking the connection.

Cheers,

Imar

Then I think it's an issue in your local network such as a firewall blocking access to port 587.

I copied and pasted your config code and then send a message using it. Works fine for me.

Cheers,

Imar
