Configuring BlogEngine.NET with GoDaddy

September 6, 2016 at 1:04 AMMadestro

If you are reading this, chances are you have figured out by now that GoDaddy does not allow external mail relay.

In other words, if you try to use an external mail server to send e-mail, it won't work.

Fortunately, the solution is simple:

Use their mail relay.

If you are like me, however, you are probably confused as the GoDaddy relay server uses network delivery which means it does not use a username and password.

To get this to work, use the following settings:

  • E-mail Address: someaddress@godaddyhosteddomain.com
  • SMTP server: relay-hosting.secureserver.net
  • Port Number: 25
  • Username: [BLANK]
  • Password: [BLANK]

([Blank] = Do not enter anything, leave empty)

Good luck!
