OK.... After looking at lots of settings and configuration files, parameters, and such, I think I have figured out a work around on this for GoDaddy customers / client sites.
Go to DNS Manager in the GoDaddy control panel for the specified domain name that the site is running under. Look to see if GoDaddy is still your controlling configuration regarding the site email functions. In my case, most of my clients use Google Apps for their email. Remove all DNS entries related to GoDaddy and the mail configuration settings under your CNAME records that still point to secureserver.net.
Test and continue to have your forms work as normal with emails not being restricted through the GoDaddy configurations.
Note: If you have more than one domain name / WP setup under your GoDaddy hosting plan, you will need to do this for each domain name.
Additionally, if you are experiencing a similar issue with another hosting provider, I would recommend looking at this issue with them as well. either migrate your mail to Google Apps or some other email hosting solution and adjust your DNS and MX records accordingly.
