Are you able to send the mail manually, using the same configuration? If you can't send manually, tweak your SMTP setting.

Also, check your Outlook setting, you should select the option "Send message immediately".

the reason is it uses local smtp in my machine, instead of that server. so i uninstalled smtp from my machine from then the error is different.
CDO.Message.1 (0x80040220) The "SendUsing" configuration value is invalid.

the code is here
Set mmcdoconfig = New Cdo.Configuration
Set mgcdomsg = New Cdo.Message
Set ar = an.Execute("select * from some.customer where type=1")
Set hn = an.Execute("select * from some.htmls")
'mgcdomsg.DSNOptions = cdoDSNDefault
mmcdoconfig.Fields("sendusing") = 2 'CdoSendUsing.cdoSendUsingPort
mmcdoconfig.Fields("Smtpserver") = "smtp.hotpop.com" ' "10.10.1.23" '
mmcdoconfig.Fields("smtpserverport") = 25
mmcdoconfig.Fields("smtpauthenticate") = cdoBasic
mmcdoconfig.Fields("sendusername") = "someid"
mmcdoconfig.Fields("sendpassword") = "abcdef1"
mmcdoconfig.Fields("SendemailAddress") = val5
mmcdoconfig.Fields.Update
mgcdomsg.Subject = val4
mgcdomsg.MimeFormatted = True

mmcdoconfig.Load (cdoIIS)
Set mgcdomsg.Configuration = mmcdoconfig
'If hn.EOF <> Null Then
    mgcdomsg.HTMLBody = "<html<head></head><body>hello</body></html>" 'hn.Fields(1).Value
'End If
'While Not ar.EOF
   ' mgcdomsg.Sender = ar.Fields(2)
    mgcdomsg.To = "emailaddress"
    mgcdomsg.From = "anotheremail"
   
    mgcdomsg.Send

Only after unistalling local Smtp, it gave error, otherwise it uses localsmtp instead of remote smtp

Try this:

mmcdoconfig.Fields("Smtpserver") = "127.0.0.1"

I solved the problem myself.
instead of
mmcdoconfig.Fields("sendusing") = 2 'CdoSendUsing.cdoSendUsingPort
mmcdoconfig.Fields("Smtpserver") = "smtp.hotpop.com" ' "10.10.1.23" '
mmcdoconfig.Fields("smtpserverport") = 25
mmcdoconfig.Fields("smtpauthenticate") = cdoBasic
mmcdoconfig.Fields("sendusername") = "someid"
mmcdoconfig.Fields("sendpassword") = "abcdef1"
mmcdoconfig.Fields("SendemailAddress") = val5

i used
mmcdoconfig.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")=2
similar to this so it started using my remote server.
ANyway thanks, You made me to think more wider
