            message.IsBodyHtml = true;
            message.Body = txtEmailMessage.Text;
            smtpClient.Host = "";   //-- Donot change.
            smtpClient.Port = 25; //--- Donot change
            smtpClient.EnableSsl = false;//--- Donot change
            smtpClient.UseDefaultCredentials = true;
            smtpClient.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("EmailAddressYouHaveCreatedOnGodaddy", "PasswordSuppliedDuringEmailCreation");
