Go Daddy Email issues
I've tried now for several days to get my email working on my Droid. I use Go Daddy for email and am on a pop3 server. I can receive email, no problem. But after hours of attempts from me, Verizon and Go Daddy, I've had no luck in sending emails from my mobile phone.
Does anyone here use Go Daddy with success? Help is much appreicated!
I have tried everything too. I can't get it to connect using my firstname.lastname@example.org/password that works on my Iphone. Tried Secure/No Security, tried it without a user/password, nada. Tried using the mail.secureserver.net or whatever, tried using mail.domain.com.
I'm trying to config it for IMAP though, which I did have working on the Iphone.
Hold on, I got it to work.
It would never work from the initial configure screen, but going into mail settings it worked first time around.
on outgoing settings you must selct sign in at the bottom of the setup. I had the same issue and mine is now working fine,
Hey Stigy, I can't seem to find the windows that the poster is referring to... In fact, I only seem to show for Gmail and Corporate Exchange for account setups, nothing for Pop3/smtp. Am I missing a widget or something?
Edit - Gah... Nevermind... I figured it out... Sometimes, it just doesn't stand out that you can configure it within e-mail and add an account. Yet another diff I should submit to Google for the Settings menu vs their E-mail Account menu. :)
If it is pop3 you need to make outgoing mail server smtpout.secureserver. net. The key is to make sure the smtp relay is activated on the account. And i had to use port 3535
Just to update!
My go daddy account was at all fault with a password issue. Everything is up and working. Thanks for the input!!
I was having issues and none of the suggested resolutions worked...until I stumbled across this:
To fix this problem you "reset" the SMTP server.
Log in to your godaddy account. Go to My Email Account. Click the email address you want to fix. On the next page pop in "Outgoing Mail - SMTP Relaying" pop up the menu from 250 per day to 0 and at bottom of page "Save Settings". You will need to wait about 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, reload the page so your email addresses will become live links again. Go back in to the Edit Email Account page and pop the menu from 0 back to 250 and Save Settings.
After I did this I was finally able to get my email to work the way it should, no forwarding from other accounts or anything.
My outgoing mail would not work with my godaddy account on the droid... I checked my e-mail account settings on the godaddy web site and noticed that the SMTP relays were set to n/a. I called and asked them about this, and the person said that outgoing mail would never work on a mobile device (or outlook) with SMTP relays set to n/a. He switched it to 250 relays, and now it works fine.
