    Sending email from Gmail Account from GoDaddy Domain

    jeffeyg writes, I have set up my GoDaddy email to be forwarded to my GMail account so it shows up on my Android phone. I also want to be able to send email from my Gmail account that is FROM my GoDaddy domain. I have used the settings in the email setup screen

    smtp server = smtpout.secureserver.net 

    port = 465

    secure connection using SSL

    The GMail setup gives me an error saying "Oops we weren't able to finish. Please verify your settings with your other email service."

    Can you tell me what I"m doing wrong?


    CG writes,personally it's been my experience that copying and pasting login details of any kind is not the best practice as you might be including additional (or even hidden) characters such as a 'space' either before or after the details that's throwing off the validation check. If you can manually type in the details from both web mail and the Gmail interface you're trying to remote into, that should work.


    If you're still running into the error, I'd recommend reviewing our Remote Access walk through for Gmail accounts. You can also check out this excerpt I included below from Google's own support forums to be sure your settings are correct. If the issue persist beyond that, you should give our live support team a try via phone or chat to review further.


    From Google:

    If you’re importing from another email provider, your other email provider has to offer POP3 access. Go ahead and try the steps below, but if you get an error you may want to visit your other email provider’s help center to see if they support POP3. You can also try other ways to move emails to Gmail.

    1. Open your Gmail account.
    2. At the top right, click the gearSettings.
    3. Select Settings.
    4. Select the Accounts and Import tab.
    5. In the "Check mail from other accounts (using POP3)" section, click Add a POP3 mail account you own.
    6. Enter the full email address of the other account, then click Next Step.
    7. Enter your password.
    8. Now you have a few options to choose from. Here’s our recommended settings:
      • Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server - Check the box. Otherwise the emails in your other account will be deleted and you’ll only be able to access them in Gmail. Learn more.
      • Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail - Keep checked. For some accounts, you may need to uncheck this option. Learn more.
      • Label incoming messages - Check the box if you’d like to easily see which emails in your inbox came from this account.
      • Archive incoming messages - Don’t check. Only check if you don’t want to see new messages from the other account in your inbox.
    9. Click Add Account. If you get an error message while getting set up, click the Show error details link to find out more about what’s not working.
      • If you get a message saying that POP is disabled, go to the settings page of your other email account and look for a way to enable POP.
      • If you get a message saying that POP is unavailable, your email provider may not support POP. You can also try other ways to move emails to Gmail.
      • For other errors, visit our Problems with Mail Fetcher troubleshooter.
    10. Once your account has been added successfully, you'll be asked if you want to be able to send mail as this address. This lets you compose messages in Gmail, but have them appear to be sent from your other email account.

    Gmail will check your other account for new emails periodically. You can see when the other account was last checked from the "Accounts and Import" tab.
