Emails that are sent to my domain (mygodaddydomain.org), I want to read in my gmail account.
for example, emails sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, i want to read in gmail, and i want to be able to reply, from gmail, using the godaddy/wordpress email address (email@example.com). This way the sender only sees @mygodaddydomain.org. I do not want the emails to be 'forwarded' to my gmail account, and replied to from my gmail account.
Gmail has the ability to add multiple email inboxes, for example i can receive emails from my @gmx.com account in a separate email inbox (in gmail). In gmail when i add the secondary inbox for @gmx.com, it is real easy and it "auto-discovers" the mailserver connection settings by just entering my gmx email address.
However, this doesn't work for my "workspace control center" email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, it tells me "There was a problem connecting to mail.mygodaddydomain.org. Server returned error: "We were unable to locate the other domain. Please contact your other provider." In addition, i only have 10 workspace control center email addresses i can use.
So i tried using a cPanel email address, from the same domain "@mygodaddydomain.org". This had the same result as the workspace control center email address.
I checked my cloudflare account, and it shows this for the MX records:
MX | mygodaddydomain.org | mailstore1.secureserver.net | Auto | DNS only
MX | mygodaddydomain.org | smtp.secureserver.net | Auto | DNS only (priority 10)
so, i guess my question is ... is it even possible to receive/send emails from my godaddy hosting?
another hint -- i'm using WordPress, perhaps i can do this through wordpress?
i suppose i can create a new gmail account (email@example.com, and simply forward to that address, at least the sender would see it is somewhat close to "firstname.lastname@example.org", but this is not the ideal workaround.
if you can help that would be incredible, because i am stuck, and i don't want to simply have emails forwarded to my personal account.
