Hi @drizzle77. Welcome to GoDaddy Community! My guess would be that you either don't have the correct DNS settings for your domain or your cPanel plan isn't set up correctly. (I'm assuming you have cPanel because you mention Squirrel.) You can take a look at the correct cPanel DNS settings here. I recommend making sure you have both the mandatory and optional records listed on that article. You'll also want to make sure your cPanel account is set up to use local delivery. You can change that by:

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. In the Email section, click MX Entry.
  5. Chose the correct domain from the dropdown.
  6. Under Email Routing, chose Local Mail Exchanger (if it isn't already selected).
  7. Click Change.
