change the following line to
    <network defaultCredentials="true" host="omegalove.com)" port="25" />

<network defaultCredentials="true" host="omegalove.com" port="25" />


one more suggestion
in the above line remove defaultCredentials and put in a valid domain user name and password and try agian
<network host="omegalove.com" port="25" userName="username" password="password"/>

I got an email from the host to do the following:
i am confused:

It is mandatory to use SMTP authentication for sending out emails through our servers. You can use the below sample C# code for the same (by making required modifications):

***********************************************************************************
SmtpClient smtpClient = new SmtpClient();
MailMessage message = new MailMessage();

MailAddress fromAddress = new MailAddress("from@from.com", "From Name");

// You can specify the host name or ipaddress of your server
smtpClient.Host = "mail.yoursite.com"; //you can also specify mail server IP address here

//Default port will be 25
smtpClient.Port = 25;

NetworkCredential info = new NetworkCredential("smtpuser@yoursite.com", "smtp-password");
smtpClient.DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network;
smtpClient.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
smtpClient.Credentials = info;

//From address will be given as a MailAddress Object
message.From = fromAddress;

// To address collection of MailAddress
message.To.Add("to@domain2.com");
message.Subject = "Your subject";

// CC and BCC optional
// MailAddressCollection class is used to send the email to various users
// You can specify Address as new MailAddress("admin1@yoursite.com")
//message.Bcc.Add("bcc@yoursite.com");

//Body can be Html or text format
//Specify true if it is html message
message.IsBodyHtml = false;

// Message body content
string ss_body = "body of email is here";
message.Body = ss_body;

// Send SMTP mail
smtpClient.Send(message);
***********************************************************************************
 
I though I only needed to modify my webconfig? please help.

its not mandatory for the SMTP to use the authentication information but its dependent on the settings of the SMTP server
If you configure your SMTP server to send emails without authentication then your previous code sample will also work
