Go Daddy Mail

Brief News No Comments
GoDaddy has been my host of choice for the last 8 years and is probably one of the best choices for hosting solutions, but this post isnt a plug, simply a notice for those of you who use go daddy as a mail client. If you have a email account setup on godaddy and have had trouble with using some sort of mail tool, like entourage or outlook this might help you finally get your account working. I've had several work machines and it seems everytime you format or need to setup a new mail program you wanna crack the monitor over your head. Well here's how its done if you use godaddy for your mail accounts. This is a direct scrape from there site in case you might have a different mail program that you need to configure.

Setting up Microsoft Entourage to Access Your Email Account

You can configure Microsoft Entourage 2004 to access the email messages on your email account using POP or IMAP. While the exact steps may differ from version to version, these settings are similar in other versions of Microsoft Entourage.

To Set Up Microsoft Entourage 2004 to Access your Email Account

  1. Open Microsoft Entourage.
  2. From the Tools menu, select Accounts.
  3. Click New.
  4. If the Account Setup Assistant window opens, click Configure account manually.
  5. In the Account Type section, select POP or IMAP, and then click OK.
  6. In the Edit Account window, enter your information as follows:
    Account name
    Enter a name for your account. For example, My Mail, Work, or Home.
    Enter your first and last name.
    E-mail address
    Enter your email address.
    Account ID
    Enter your email address, again.
    POP/IMAP server
    For POP accounts, type pop.secureserver.net, or for IMAP accounts, type imap.secureserver.net for your incoming server.
    Enter the password for your email account.
    SMTP server
    Type smtpout.secureserver.net for your outgoing server.
  7. Click the Click here for more advanced sending options button, under Receiving Mail settings.

  8. NOTE:"smtpout.secureserver.net" is an SMTP relay server. To use this server to send email messages, you must first log in to your Account Manager and activate SMTP relay for your email account. If you do not have SMTP relay set up and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows it, you can use the outgoing mail server for your Internet Service Provider. Contact your Internet Service Provider for more information.

  9. Select Override default SMTP port and change the number to 80 under Sending Mail settings.

  10. NOTE: For security purposes, we recommend enabling SSL. To enable SSL, click theSecurity tab and select SMTP server requires secure connection (SSL).

  11. Click OK.
  12. If you have trouble sending mail, try setting your Outgoing mail (SMTP) server port to 25 or 3535.

  13. Select SMTP server requires authentication and use same settings as receiving mail server, and then click OK.
