    SMTP settings with Sendgrid doesn't work for me

    Hi,

    I added my SMTP settings to webconfig provided by SendGrid:

    <system.net>
        <mailSettings>
          <smtp from="something@something.com">
            <network host="smtp.sendgrid.net" password="<password>" userName="apikey" port="587" />
          </smtp>
        </mailSettings>
      </system.net>
    

    I tested with Telnet and it worked, but it doesn't work on my website. Health Check is also complaining about it:

    The SMTP server configured with host 'smtp.sendgrid.net' and port '587' could not be reached. Please check to ensure the SMTP settings in the Web.config file system.net/mailsettings are correct.

    Any advice?

    Can you do the telnet check on the machine that the site is running on?

    It seems GoDaddy shared hosting doesn't like 3rd party SMTP services.
