        Dim MyCommand As New SqlCommand("GetAutoEmails", MyConnection)
        Dim dr As SqlDataReader
            'English News
            MyCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            MyCommand.Parameters.Add("@module", "UpdateRSS")
            dr = MyCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.Default)

            '(1) Create the MailMessage instance
            Dim mm As New Mail.MailMessage()

            '(2) Assign the MailMessage's properties
            mm.Subject = "Xml feed error"
            mm.Body = "Please check RSS they are not updated, got errors in the following file:" + file + "<br>" + strError
            mm.From = "tech@menafn.com"
            Dim strTo As String = ""
            While dr.Read
                strTo = strTo + ";" + dr("ae_email")

            End While
            mm.To = strTo

Are there any exceptions?  Have you configured the SmtpClient correctly for dedrelay.secureservers.net?
