sending email functionality not working on server, but works in local machine.

I created Send Email functionality as suggested in below ...


 string txtEMailFrom = "DoNotReply@XX.com";
 SmtpClient clientServer = new SmtpClient("smtp55.XX.com");
 MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();
 msg.From = new MailAddress(txtEMailFrom);
 msg.To.Add(new MailAddress(ClientEmail));
 msg.Subject = SubjectLine;
 msg.IsBodyHtml = true;
 msg.Body = Message;
 clientServer.UseDefaultCredentials = true;                

It works fine when running in VS2012 or deploying in local machine IIS. However when deployed to test server (WIN server 2008 R2)  getting an exception "Unable to connect to remote server"

Any ideas ?

can u post ur service method.. most likely u are getting an error in ur service method. if you are not doing any other sort of error handling.. wrap this piece of code in a try catch and try to log/send the error.

Never mind, Looks like port issue on the server. Server Team working on enabling Port 25.
