    OK, I'll admit to being spoiled by my BlackBerry when setting up email accounts.
    Can anyone help with setting up accounts from Go Daddy hosted mail? Not having much luck (similar to the problems others were having w Yahoo mail)
    Thanks!

    That Worked. Thanks Stigy!

    The odd thing is that I have two domains w Go Daddy - one was POP, one was IMAP...
    Got it done with some trial and error, though.
    For anyone else setting up accounts - you may have to try POP and IMAP for your accounts and play with the security settings. You may require SSL, you may not. No reason for the playing around that I can see but that what you may need to do.

    I switched from GoDaddy a long time ago and I remember their mail was very, very confusing to get setup.

    Good work!!

    Check your outgoing. If it doesn't work you have to select verify pasword on the bottom of the outgoing server page

    Settings that Work

    Ok,
    After much playing with godaddy account, I was able to get my phone to get my phone receiving and sending. Here are the things i change

    1. Make sure you setup your username properly, username@domain.com
    2. Changed my outgoing server to smtpout.secureserver.net
    3. Changed port for outgoing port to 80.
    4. Check the Sign in required box

    It seems to work fine.

    Maybe you can help me...I don't see the option for step 4 (checking the Sign In box) Can you give me clue where I can find it? I've just picked up the Moto Droid.

    Thanks much

    None of this stuff has worked for me unfortunately. I was hoping it was everyone but since it seems to work for others I guess I'm in trouble :)

    Godaddy Issues

    I can receive my email from my domain on godaddy. The problem is it locks up everytime and doesn't download new emails unless I delete all email and do a hard reboot. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

    Currently, only GoDaddy's "Unlimited" email plans support IMAP access. "Personal" and "Deluxe" plans only support POP access. At this time (the page Stigy mentioned previously) GoDaddy's documentation about setting up a Droid doesn't explain this detail.

    I still haven't been able to find outbound server settings that work. If anyone knows how to configure the outbound settings on a Deluxe plan, please tell us what worked.

    TIA

    You have a g-mail account to activate the droid phone correct? I simply forward my email from go daddy to my gmail, works flawlessly.

    I must admit I feel like a dummy.. Make sure you use (smtpout.secureserve.net) on the out going server.. I was not putting the (out) part

    I have just set up 8 different pop accounts on my new droid, 5 of which are with Go Daddy. Spoke with VZW tech support and outbound needs to run through gmail smtp server, not godaddy's. You need to set-up a g-mail account first, even if you are not going to use it. Here are the outbound settings:

    SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
    Port: 465
    Security type: SSL(accept all certificates)
    Require sign in: checked
    Username: full gmail e-mail address
    Password: gmail e-mail account password

    smtpout.secureserver.net
    465
    SSL
    require sign-in checked
    name@domain.com
    password

    I usse the same settings but my email locks up 1-2 times a week.

    smtpout.secureserver.net
    465
    SSL
    require sign-in checked
    name@domain.com
    password

    imap.secureserver.net
    993
    SSL

    I do have a laptop, desktop and my droid all working off the same account. I'm not sure why it locks up.

    The DROID SUX for email

    I want to say that I love Google for many things, but I can not see buying a Droid/Android phone for just the simple reason that their take on email SUX. They claim to be breaking new ground with this revolutionary new phone, but they take a step back with the "Just use gmail". Gmail is like a dumbed down Outlook Express, and works for little more than a personal email service. Not to mention the lag time to receive email. Google really missed the boat with that aspect of the Droid. This is really a kick ass "toy", but if you want a phone for work you really have to look to other phones. I hate to say it but it really makes the iPhone look good. Either way I will most likely stay with my Blackberry.....because the BB DOES EMAIL.
