Configure Email Client With GoDaddy Webmail

As part of a promotional package, I have received one free email account from GoDaddy while purchasing a domain name from them. Since I have been fed up with remembering a lot of email addresses, I decide to configure the new address with Email Client installed on my laptop. So at least I am sure, I won't miss any important messages. The procedure to setup Email Client with GoDaddy webmail is very simple. However, if you don't understand the terms incoming and outgoing servers, or don't know where to find them, it may be a little bit difficult. If you are one among them, this tutorial can help you. In this tutorial, I used eM Client as my desktop email client to download and store messages coming to my GoDaddy webmail service. You can use the same procedure to configure GoDaddy webmail with other applications like Outlook, exchange etc.

Get POP3 and SMTP Information

First of all, we need to find the incoming server (POP3) and outgoing server (SMTP) with standard port numbers. In most cases, you will be asked by the installer tool to enter these details to establish a connection for downloading emails. To find them follow the steps below.
  1. Login to GoDaddy account

  2. Go to My Account

  3. Click Launch button at Email

  4. Click on the drop-down button near the address and click Email Setup Center

  5. Here we can see the all necessary details required like GoDaddy incoming and outgoing server with port numbers to make the connection between the desktop client application and webmail.

Setup Desktop Email Client With GoDaddy Webmail Service

Since we have all the necessary details to establish the connection, let us go to the desktop application and start the configuration. Connection procedure is similar irrespective of the client applications you use.
  1. Start the Email Client

  2. Create a new account

    Interfaces may look different but the procedure is the same. In eM Client, click New Account button.

  3. Setup the Account

    You can either use Automatic Setup or manual setup. If you choose Automatic Setup, all you have to do is to click Start Now button after entering the email id and password.

  4. Configure manually

    In case the Automatic procedure fails, you should click on Mail and start the manual procedure.

  5. Enter Incoming server address. In my case, it is with port number 110.

    After entering the details, press next.

  6. Enter the outgoing server

    For me, it is with port number 80.

    If you are not planning to configure no authentication for outgoing server, check the checkbox. Click next button to continue.

  7. Here you can see whether the values you have entered are correct.

  8. Enter the account details.

    Click the next button to finish the procedure.

Soon after pressing the finish button, messages will be downloaded from the webmail account to your computer. It may take a few minutes to hours depends on the number of messages in your account.
