Setting Up GoDaddy Email Accounts

MX Record Configuration
Log on to your hosting provider or third-party domain name system manager.
Change your MX records to:
MX 0 = smtp.secureserver.net
MX 10 = mailstore1.secureserver.net

Domain-specific aliases are easier to remember:
CNAME mail.mydomain.com -> pop.secureserver.net or smtpout.secureserver.net
CNAME pop.mydomain.com -> pop.secureserver.net
CNAME smtp.mydomain.com -> smtpout.secureserver.net

POP (Incoming mail server)
Port: 110
Server: pop.secureserver.net
Username: your whole email address
SSL: Nope, that sucks unless you get certs

SMTP (outgoing mail server)
Port: 80 (Not the standard port 25!)
Server: smtpout.secureserver.net
Username: your whole email address
SSL: Nope, that sucks unless you get certs
SMTP must authenticate
You do not need to check mail before sending mail
