ASP Net SMTP Errors

After the original issues of figuring out I was using the wrong host and post (googling this leads you to alot of unanswered posts, logging in @ https://emailsetup.godaddy.com/ will get you the SMTP information you need)

 

Now that, that's all sorted out I get the following

 

[SmtpException: Syntax error, command unrecognized. The server response was: ]
   System.Net.Mail.ConnectAndHandshakeAsyncResult.End(IAsyncResult result) +1908259

 I'm not too sure what the issue is, this isnt the first time me setting up SMTP in .net applications, but sending from a godaddy email is the first time I've had this much trouble.

 

Where do I even begin to troubleshoot this?

So if I use port 25 instead of 465 it works fine. But I need to send these emails using SSL.

 

Any answers?

Turns out Snippet dosent support implicit SSL (port 465) only explicit (port 587), so I had to grab a nuget package to meet this requirement.

System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient
