It seems that this question has been asked but not sufficiently answered. So here is my solution to getting confirmation emails from godaddy hosting.
// Email Settings
$WA_GLOBAL_Email_To = "firstname.lastname@example.org" ;
$WA_GLOBAL_Email_Server = "define your outgoing (STMP) server here" ;
Of course I had to also download and implement the Known issues
Goddady's support did not seem to understand the concept of emailing from within the site. The outgoing email server has to be defined in the WA_Globals.php and all problems were solved
