Google alias email address - SMTP info for my GD domain email?

Hello, this is my first posting here, and I am sure this must have come up but I couldn't find it. I am trying to get Gmail to send out mail under the alias of my domain email address. It is asking me for the SMTP details for the new email address...but I have no idea where they would be found.

 

Please help!

Re: Google alias email address - SMTP info for my GD domain email?

If you want to use Gmail to send & receive with your GoDaddy email address, you'll need to follow these steps:

 

  1. Log into Gmail : www.gmail.com
  2. Top right corner, click on the gear
  3. Click on Settings
  4. Click on the Accounts and Import Tab
  5. Scroll down where it says “Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)” and click on “Add a POP3 mail account you own”
  6. A pop up will appear, enter your email address “youremail@yourdomain.com” and click on Next Step
  7. Under Username enter your email address “youremail@yourdomain.com”, enter the password you usually use for your email address on Godaddy webmail,
    Pop Server: pop.secureserver.net and Port: 995, check the box “always use SSL” and check the “Label Incoming messages”, (Note: if you would like to keep a copy of your emails on your Godaddy server, check the box “Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server.”) and finally click on Add Account.
  8. Check the box “yes I want to be able to send email as…” and click on Next Step.
  9. Enter the name you wish to show up when sending an email (leave the box treat as Alias checked) and click on next step
  10. SMTP settings: SMTP server should be smtpout.secureserver.net – the port should be 465
    Enter your username youremail@yourdomain.com, enter your password  and click on add account.
  11. The last step is to verify: They will email you a confirmation code. Login one last time to your GoDaddy email account from Godaddy.com webmail application, and open the email from “gmail Team”. Copy and paste the number and click on “verify”. You are all set!
