Thankyou for your responses,
Yes i have noticed it now has to be relay-hosting.secureserver.net but does it require a username and password still and if so would this be of a specific e-mail account?
With regards to posting back i am still learning it myself, the site has PayPal and WorldPay integrated and appears to collect the information from Ads.cs and then use a IPN file to send this to the relevant payment processor. This is then posted back to
the same file to either show an error or success and modify the classifieds_ads table to activate the ad.
The reason it is not working appears to be an issue with no access to the IPNlog.txt, i presume this is file permissions. Although GoDaddy only allow you to set permissions on directories not files, any suggestions how this may be done as ftp also does not
allow you to.

Ive got the e-mail working it is with a e-mail account specific username and password if anyone is interested.

where does IPNlog.txt sit?
Do you have a shared plan with GoDaddy? because if you have a vded or ded it could be ntfs permissions.

In the root, its windows shared hosting?

You need to move that file to a protected location ASAP. Visiting the file directly displays infomation about people that purchased via your website..this is a MAJOR security threat. Your users would be furious if they know about this..
I would make that highest priority...
Move the txt file to App_Data or something...

I have done many thanks i had not noticed this, i have as mentioned just taken control of the website and learning asp as i go, personally i have always used linux and php.
Any idea how to sort this permissions issue on that file?
Also this may sound really stupid, but if you edit for example the Ads.cs file, how do you compile this into the .aspx and the dll file (that creates i presume the bin folder etc) in Visual Studio as the 'Build' function does not appear to do anything?

The best way to deal with the file issue is to move that file to the App_Data folder and re-point whatever code that writes to it to the new location.
Regarding the compiling; use Web Deployment Projects
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/asp.net/aa336619.aspx its a wrapper for aspnet_compiler.exe that uses MSBuild (this comes as part of the .NET framework & VStudio)
MSBuild is the .NET 2.0 and is like ANT for java (or NANT for .NET 1.1)

I have sorted the file issue. With the compiling i am using Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition, do you know if such a tool is available for this version/product.

Note: Web Deployment Projects are not supported with Visual Studio 2008 Express Editions.
So with the express edition does that mean i cannot compile the website to work on my host? Sorry to sound really lost you know how it is till you have done it once!
