Although I am still in the development phase for my site, I have setup Microsoft Live email in my _AppStart.
I really like the Outlook.com interface and as it allows me to have multiple email accounts I thought it was going to be a perfect solution for the very limited email traffice of my website.
So, far it is an utter disaster.
It appears that on a whim Microsoft decides that the emails I am sending are an indication of a spam operation, and stops email traffic.
What happens is that when new users try to register, the confirmation email is causing an unhandled exception.
When I log into that email account I get the whole spiel of the account being disabled because of suspected spam
Then it forces me to verify the email address again, with the use of a mobile device.
Then it forces me to change the password.
I may have sent twenty emails or so, in the last few months, testing the functionality of the site.
Now, I only figured out something was wrong because I was doing some testing and making changes to the registration page. Without that I would have never found out.
What a mess!

Yes, but a simple user can use their server to send emails.
I use theirs server to send emails. I am not an Apps user but still I can use it.
Google Apps is better just to have alot of space.

Yes Thats good. @wavemaster try using gmail i.e smtp.gmail.com with port number 567 or 25.
Try both i don't know for me sometimes email weren't getting sent using 567 so try 25 too.
I use port 25 with my Google Apps custom domain email.
@afzal he wont be able to use custom domain email he will have to use his own email id email@example.com

And also mentioned that I use my own account.
I dont have any Google Apps account. So I just use my own email address and its password. Thats just all.
