After looking further, here is what I have discovered.
I installed this app in a subfolder of the root website.
In the web.config for the root folder, I have roleManager enabled due to some forms authenticating with roles on some of the pages.
So, in the web.config for the blog (subfolder), the only way around the error I was getting was to disable the roleManager.
The forms that require authentication are in subfolders of their own, so I am looking into putting the "enable" in the subfolder web.config to see if I can take that line back out of the web.config in the /blog folder.
The message now makes sense. The web.config for the root site, had a connection string to a database and had roleManager enabled, so when it got to the blog page, and tried to authenticate, it was defaulting to the roleManager in the root folder when trying
to apply the roles.
I do have one more question though. When applying the Mail to Weblog, the documentation says that the the app will need a "manual" reset. Since I am hosting this site & blog on GoDaddy, how do you do a "manual reset"?

You mind posting the web.config (our sending it through private email)... it's a strange error and the web.config should work as is.
