Weird smtp mail server issue

I have come across a very weird error that I am having a hard time figuring out:

This persists after a format and reinstall of windows and outlook. This happens INSTANTLY. No waiting, INSTANTLY. It only happens with the mail server the client uses which is which is a godaddy server.

This only happens when sending to gmail and yahoo addresses.
I have used the same mail server from a different location and I don't get this issue. I can ping/trace route this server with no issues. I used another account and different server and had no issues.
