    We don't provide customers with access directly onto our web server because we host everyone in a shared hosting environment.

    Read the following knowledge base articles on getting started with your site account:

    If you created an application using Visual Studio please read our knowledge base article on how to web deploy the application onto our server here: https://support.Winhost.com/KB/a1092/how-do-i-deploy-visual-studio-2012-web-application.aspx

  4. Its working fine now.. but in my website I am sending emails out and I am getting this error "server does not support secure connections"
    I am using Host = "mail.sdonlineportal.com" but which username and password I use.
     
  5. Don't use SSL when connecting to your mail server to send through it, just use plain SMTP over port 25 or 587.

    Also since your web server's localhost SMTP service is disabled you will need send through your mail server's SMTP service at "mail.yourdomain.com".
     
  6. So in my local env in my code I used

    Host = "mail.sdonlineportal.com",
    Port = 587,
    EnableSsl = false,
    DeliveryMethod = SmtpDeliveryMethod.Network,
    UseDefaultCredentials = false,
    Credentials = new NetworkCredential(Username, Password)

    username : postmaster@sdonlineportal.com
    password: xxxx (which i set by me)

    and now emails going fine to say gmail but when I test this same on hosted website on Winhost emails not going out ?

    I also try to changed settings in SMTP Email in IIS manager for Winhost website
    emailaddress: postmaster@sdonlineportal.com
    SMTP address: mail.sdonlineportal.com
    port: 587
    Authentication settings: not required

    and even then email not going out.

    I would say make sure you're using the correct password when sending the email message out. Try login into the mail interface directly to make sure you're using the correct password for the postmaster email account.

    If you forgot the password you can change it by following the instructions below:

    You will need to login to the SmarterMail system with the postmaster email account first in order to change the password for the email user. To do this please login to your control panel on Winhost.

    Once you have logged in to your Winhost control panel. Click on the Sites tab at the top. Or simply click here: https://cp.Winhost.com/sites/

    Then click on Manage next to the site you wish to manage.

    Click on the Email box under site tools. Or simply click here: https://cp.Winhost.com/sites/email.aspx

    Then click on the link SmarterMail Manager

    The link will automatically log you into the SmarterMail email system.

    Once you are in the SmarterMail email system. Click on the Settings button. (Looks like a gear icon)

    Then expand the Domain Settings folder if it is not already expanded.

    Click on Users

    Click on the Email User.

    Click edit.

    Enter the new password in the New Password field box and also re-enter the confirm password in the field provided.

    Then click Save

    Then use the new password for your email account.
