Keep getting the error:

"Insufficient permissions for setting the configuration property 'port'."

Dim client As SmtpClient = New SmtpClient()
client.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network
client.EnableSsl = "True"

I get the error on this line:

          <smtp from="">
               <network host="" port="587" userName="" password="pass" defaultCredentials="false" />

I am certain the port=587 is correct.

Tried 25, 80, 2525 and 8080 and they did not work.

I think it has something to do with the "Encryption Connection (SSL)" but I thought I had addressed it with "client.EnableSsl = 'true'".
