using godaddy smtp server when email only uses forwarding

Hello, for a new domain I intend to use forwarding addresses and I will not create any actual inbox user on godaddy's email system.


With this configuration, is it still possible for me to send emails for my domain using the godaddy smtp server ? In case, which username/password should I use since no inbox user is created?

Hi @ihcsasac. You wouldn't be able to send emails via our SMTP servers unless you have an active email address, which includes an inbox. Forwarding email address plans do not provide access to SMTP services.
