I have tested with the Exact same settings on both my local joomla website and the live one.

rex-topia.com [Live]

SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host.

Locally [localhost]

The email was sent to [email protected] using SMTP. You should check that you've received the test email.

With these settings. [From GoDaddy's mail service]

SMTP Host           :: smtpout.secureserver.net
SMTP Port           :: 465
SMTP Security       :: SSL/TLS
SMTP Authentication :: YES

SMTP Username       :: [email protected]
SMTP Password       :: **SECRET**

Am I missing something?
