Unable to connect to the remote server

I'm trying to send an email from my website hosted here. Sometimes is working (yesterday one email) and sometimes not (today not at all). In Email Setup Center I found Email Server Settings SMTP host: and ports 80, 3535, 25, 465 (SSL) so in my code I'm using next SMTP client:
var client = new SmtpClient()
EnableSsl = false,
UseDefaultCredentials = false,
Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("email", "password"),
DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network,
Host= "",
Port = 25
Problem is that I'm receiving a next error all the time and I do not know what to do any more:
Unable to connect to the remote server
A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond

I need a help with this, maybe somebody has solution?

What about trying to send to

This email service comes with the windows hosting plans!

Can you confirm please?
