using godaddy as service I send the mail. However, the mail do not appear at the To email address

using godaddy as service I send the mail.  However, the mail do not appear at the To email address.  Instead the mail appears in the in folder my email account on Godaddy on the application.

I would like to see the mail in the sent folder in my account and to the To email account.

Please help. Thanks


public static void sendmail(string strFrom, string strToName, string strTo, string strSubject, string strBody)
        {
            MailMessage EmailMsg = new MailMessage();
            EmailMsg.From = new MailAddress(strFrom,strFrom);
           
            EmailMsg.To.Add(new MailAddress(strToName, strTo));
            EmailMsg.Subject = strSubject;
            EmailMsg.Body = strBody;
            EmailMsg.IsBodyHtml = true;
            // EmailMsg.Priority = MailPriority.Normal;

            SmtpClient MailClient = new SmtpClient();
            MailClient.Send(EmailMsg);

            // HttpContext.Current.Response.Redirect("mailsent.aspx");

        }

None of the many emails I have sent from my Godaddy web site have ever ended up in my 'Sent Items' folder.  None of the ones that have sent with a desktop email client are there either.  Only the ones that you send thru the WebMail service end up there on their servers.

I was told by Godaddy at one time that either the To or the From address had to be a valid email account on Godaddy.  That's the way it seems to work on my Windows hosting there.  It looks like your code is C#.NET but it doesn't look complete.  This is the closest I could find to your code: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.mail.mailmessage%28v=vs.110%29.aspx

I suggest you click on "Request Attention" and get the C# and .NET Topic Areas added to your question.  The Email Servers and Email Protocols Topic Areas are not really about writing code like this.

The code is typical and does not have any errors.  What I do not understand is how Godaddy software is set up to address email sent?

You have this line

 EmailMsg.To.Add(new MailAddress(strToName, strTo));

and that needs to be an email address.  Trace what strTo is and that will be your answer.

If the mail is going to your own email address, the first thing to check is where you are sending it to.    Are you 100% sure the variable, 'strTo' is going to the email address you are expecting.  Or am I missing something else.

myCLib.gMail.sendmail("info@right-match.com","xxxx@yahoo.com","xxxx@yahoo.com", "teststrsubject", "teststrbody");


Where xxxx is only an example.

Can you verify if all the statement I wrote are correct to send the mail.  Do I need to provide any other outbound parameter for the mail outbound to work on godaddy server?  

Thanks

Yes, you need to identify the SMTP server.  Here is Godaddy's C# example that I just found: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/1073/using-cdosys-to-send-email-from-your-windows-hosting-account

In your original code you have to top, and the bottom is what you just posted.  Notice they are not the same format.   This is way I like to be silly and start with the most basic first.   I use CDO to send mail all the time although not in C but is is very similar.  

The top looks like you have a function for MailAddress and the bottom looks like you have a function for sendmail.  Which is the actual function you are using and what does each field do?  

I assume the bottom is the actual and I see 5 fields being passed.  I assume in order you have:
From:info@right-match.com
To_Name:xxxx@yahoo.com
To_Email:xxxx@yahoo.com
Subject:teststrsubject
Body:teststrbody

When testing are you using your own xxxx@yahoo.com? or by mistake is the "to" field, nfo@right-match.com?

 EmailMsg.To.Add(new MailAddress(strToName, strTo));

myCLib.gMail.sendmail("info@right-match.com","xxxx@yahoo.com","xxxx@yahoo.com", "teststrsubject", "teststrbody");

I had everything correct.

It appear that the out email address GoDaddy has assigned is not part of the web account.  It is still map to the main account.

I have talked to few people at Godaddy.com but I am getting a run around.

When I put out email address from other web account it works.

Thanks
