Email Automation with blat through GoDaddy-SMTP server does not like sender name ERROR

I am trying to automate an email from my GoDaddy email account using blat.  I can not get around the error "The SMTP server does not like the sender name.  Have you set your email address correctly."  (I am trying to send an email to my Outlook email address)

Currently I am trying the following:

blat -s TestEmail -body "Here are reports" -attach PRBankBalAct.pdf -f -to -debug

I have set install to the following:  server: and my login:
Is my login my login to GoDaddy or my email account?  I am using the email account.

I then installed STUNNEL and setup the conf file as
client = yes
accept  = 25
connect =

Yet I'm still unsuccessful.  I can not get around the error "The SMTP server does not like the sender name.  Have you set your email address correctly."  

I do not know how to get a copy of the debug lines here.  Sorry.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

have you tried to simulate a session with the host manually through telnet?  You might need to use a base64 decoder to help you answer the prompts

Base64 decoder:

Test with authentication:

Test without authentication:

This could very well help you figure out what the host is wanting.  If the session requires authentication and you are not providing it, then that could certainly be the problem.

Really didn't help.  Still had same issues with server error trying this.
