if you were on with godaddy support and got nowhere Im not sure anyone can give yo other advice. The ssl port was what I would have suggested checking but seems like you have.
Do you have a personal email address from your ISP? You can usually use their SMTP Out server if the godaddy one doesnt work. For example if you have rogers, att, etc, usually you will have like smtp.rogers.com to use and that almost always will work. It's sort of a run around though. I resell domain names for GD's parent company WWD, and always use my local ISP for out emails.
Some googling suggests trying port 3535 with no SSL. Have you tried this?
Some other combos I found:
SSL on and off
Thanks for the help,,, I had tried most of those combonations,,, and i just tried the few
that I hadn't... those don't work either...
I did however notice something,,, when I use the "correct" sever name smtpout.secureserver.net,,,
and any combonation of SSL, and ports,,, the rejection comes quick,,, and is always wrong
username or password...
But, when I try various versions of the server name... , the rejection takes at least 10 minutes,, and the message
is always server can't be reached...
So this at least leads me to believe the server name/address is correct,, and the problem is likely
a combonation of SSL and ports... or the possibility that godaddy and apple just won't play nicely together..
but to answer your earlier statement,, I do have a personal email acct.. and I do use that server for outgoing,, but i'd like to eventually get rid of that email account...
Thanks again for your thoughts..
I gave up after I learned gmail will let you register your email; mine is with godaddy as well and then use their outgoing gmail server! I switched and have zero problems now with outgoing mail. Now the only remaining problem with my imap with godaddy is i get "some" but not all of my email in my iphone; all in my laptop desktop and ipad. Go figure! Any ideas on that appreciated
OK I got the answer from an awesome Apple Advanced Technical support rep today!

Go into Advanced Tab

After Edit SMTP Server List:

I Hope This Helps You All! This is frustrating thing to deal with but good to know a fix!
I FOUND IT! Yessssssss!
The GoDaddy iPhone app that originally only searched for available domain names is now a fully functioning email app. I don't know when the update happened. I've been using it for a week without any problems. I can finally reply to my business emails using my business email from my phone - after years of waiting - problem solved. Yay! Applause!
