8. Its Official : GoDaddy server not connecting to external SMTPs

I have been trying to write a php script which can email using smtp may be Google account or any other account, but after spending lot of time, I found that Godaddy (where I have my hosting account) doesn’t even allow scripts to make socket connection. Embarrassing, isn’t it !
