SocketException GoDaddy – Solved Issue Plesk Sending Mails

Okay. Yesterday I was stuck in SocketException on Plesk panel using service. The solution was rather easy. It is detailed on here. To solve this issue:

In your code use the below SMTP configuration:


String message = "Name:\r\n"+Name+"Message:"+Message+"\r\n";

MailMessage mail = new MailMessage();
mail.From = new MailAddress("");
mail.To.Add(new MailAddress(""));

mail.Subject = "Enquiry for Godaddy Testing.";
mail.Body = message;
SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient();

Now in the web.config file add below Mail settings:


<compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.6.1"/>
<httpRuntime targetFramework="4.6.1"/>

<smtp from="">
<network host="" port="25" />

That’s it. Mail will be sent using From email address only. Don’t worry. The mail send using this code will be delayed for few seconds but it will be delivered.

Thank You.
