smtp, asp.net, godaddy

I have web hosting on goDaddy.com
and now I want to put the following codes
into another hosting server which is not in godaddy.com
Will the SMTP still work?


  public static string SendEmail(string from, string to, string subject, string body)
        {
            try
            {
                MailMessage MessageInfo = new MailMessage(from, to, subject, body);
                MessageInfo.IsBodyHtml = true;
                SmtpClient EmailClient = new SmtpClient("relay-hosting.secureserver.net", 25);
                System.Net.NetworkCredential SMTPUserInfo = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("smtp01@xxx.com", "xxx");
                EmailClient.UseDefaultCredentials = false;
                EmailClient.Credentials = SMTPUserInfo;
                EmailClient.Send(MessageInfo);
                return "Send";
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                return "Unable to send email<br>" + e.ToString() + "<br>";
            }
        }

No, it will only work in the GoDaddy environment.
You will have to set up your own mail server or use a generic one like GMail.

hmmm.. okay.
assume I have my own server, 173.111.111.1111
and I want to code reside on 173.111.111.1112. Will the SMTP still work?

SmtpClient EmailClient = new SmtpClient(173.111.111.1111, 25);

Not sure I understand what you mean
Normally you do not open mail servers to allow relaying - allows the possibility of your mail server being used to send spam..
