SMTP Outgoing and Godaddy.

Outgoing mail seems to only work when port is 25, SMTP AUTH = false, and using the relay...net as host name. Is there any alternative options? Is the option in question safe?

GoDaddy generally requires SMTP to go through their relay server - this is done to protect their network - the option is to use a service like Amazon SES or Sendgrid that allow API connections

Is Godaddy's relay server only in use for form mail? It doesn't seem to work for any sending of newsletter.phps. What do you think

It is used for anything involving the PHP Mailer
