What is the message that is shown, along with "Failure sending mail"?

Also note that you should never share your username and password (even with one or two characters removed) on the internet. It's for your own privacy!

I have added the answer to your problem. Please see my solution.

Now i have found the solution. The code below is work for me just changing the smtp server thanks every one.

try
           {
               //Create the msg object to be sent
               MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();
               //Add your email address to the recipients
               msg.To.Add(someone@any.com);
               //Configure the address we are sending the mail from
               MailAddress address = new MailAddress("user@mydomain.com");
               msg.From = address;
               msg.Subject = "anything";
               msg.Body = "anything";

               //Configure an SmtpClient to send the mail.
               SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient();
               client.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
               client.EnableSsl = false;
               client.Host = "relay-hosting.secureserver.net";
               client.Port = 25;

               //Setup credentials to login to our sender email address ("UserName", "Password")
               NetworkCredential credentials = new NetworkCredential("user@mydomain.com", "Password");
               client.UseDefaultCredentials = true;
               client.Credentials = credentials;

               //Send the msg
               client.Send(msg);

               //Display some feedback to the user to let them know it was sent
               Label1.Text = "Your message was sent!";
           }
           catch (Exception ex)
           {
               //If the message failed at some point, let the user know
               Label1.Text = ex.ToString();
               //"Your message failed to send, please try again."
           }

its work fine for me, after a long time searching answers, the key is: client.Host = "relay-hosting.secureserver.net";
The solution to this is to not send email from gmail's smtp servers, send them through GoDaddy's smtp server.

A fuller explanation as to why is detailed here;

I have tried this but its also not work for me. Please see I updated my Q and full errorr
You need to verify the GoDaddy SMTP settings first. Majority of the times, you will get error due to setting up an incorrect settings.

Also try to debug the code with try..catch block and track the inner exception.

How to verify GoDaddy SMTP setting in plesk hosting.
Hi
Before coding

Check if you are able to send email using the SMTP server , check the ports , in this case port 587.
Usually it's 25(SMTP) , 465(SMTP with SSL).

You can telnet

telnet <serve> <port>

You can also try to send email using telnet.

port 587 is work fin with my local server and GoDaddy classical hosting. I have talk with GoDaddy support also but they have told its my script fault and their server settings are Ok.
That is because of the port you're using and the server isn't responding to the request of yours at that port. Change the port to 25 and then retry. I have always used 25, and it always worked.
