    I tried sending a test email. This is was response:

    "Test Message Sent
    wordpress Test mail to ZZZ@ZZZ.com

    Be sure to check your email to see if you received it.
    See FAQ

    The E-mail debugging output is shown below:

    How can I trouble shoot "Could not instantiate mail function."?

    When I switch to send via php this is the message I get:
    "Test Message Sent
    php Test mail to XXX@YYY

    The result was:

    See FAQ

    bool(false)"

    However no message is received in either instance.

    Hey Green Skies,
    It seems like we are having some similar issues: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/550-verification-failed.

    I haven't figured it out yet, but hopefully we will get there soon.

    Your web host has a fouled up mail server.

    Thank you. I figured out a work around.
    I needed to install a plugin to allow more configuration of the email settings: WP-Mail-SMTP

    For godaddy this works.
    Mailer: via SMTP
    SMTP Host: smtout.secureserver.net
    SMTP port: 25
    No encryption
    Yes: Use SMTP authentication.
    Add username and password.

    Thanks for your help.
