How to send email from WordPress with GoDaddy Hosting

Postby Saman » Tue Dec 22, 2009 12:59 am

  1. Create a new e-mail account using the GoDaddy mail control panel. If you already are using GoDaddy as your e-mail provider, you don’t need to create a new one.

  2. Install either WP-Mail-SMTP or Cimy Swift SMTP. Since I am not using Cimy Swift SMTP, my instructions apply to WP-Mail-SMTP, but the solution should be fairly similar for Cimy. Then activate the plug-in.

  3. In the WordPress administration console, click “Settings”.

  4. Click the Email link under “Settings” (or the equivalent for Cimy). Enter the following data:


    1. From Email: “yourusername@domain.com” (without the quotes). This must be your GoDaddy hosted e-mail account.

    2. From Name: type in either your name or the name of your website. This will make the From line of the e-mail read as “From Name” <yourusername@domain.com>.

    3. Mailer: Choose “Send all WordPress emails via SMTP”. Do not choose the “…PHP mail() function…” because it won’t work.

    4. SMTP Host: relay-hosting.secureserver.net (do not use the SMTP server that GoDaddy provided you during your e-mail account sign-up. For the record, that is smtpout.secureserver.net).

    5. SMTP Port: 25 (default for most SMTP servers).

    6. Encryption: Choose “No encryption”. (I hope you aren’t sending sensitive data!)

    7. Authentication: Choose “No: Do not use SMTP authentication”.

    8. Click the Update Options button. You will be taken to the General Settings tab.

    9. Now click the Email link again. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and type in a valid e-mail address in the To: box under the “Send a Test Email” section.

    10. Click the Send Test button.

    11. If you did everything correctly, you should see the following screen:

I switched my server from Windows to Linux hosting (free) and php mail started to work.
If you have Windows hoting, you can switch to Linux for free. One thing to note here. If you do that, your .htaccess file(s) comes to action with Linux and you must take care on that. (You may just rename it to see whether that's the problem in not allowing access to domain).

I think the best with GoDaddy is Linux as it removed lots of my other problems too.

If you need to send more than 1000 emails per day, do not chose GoDaddy hosting. Their email packages are very expensive and they don't allow 3rd part SMTP servers as well.

Solution: Find a host with a reasonable amount of SMTP quota or with external SMTP access.
