Configuring Godaddy Email Account in iPhone

Even though Godaddy has an wonderful article for setting up their email account in iPhone, I have provided here with some additional tips and screenshot. At anytime, you can refer this Godaddy article for your reference.

1.  In your iPhone, Choose Settings. On the Settings screen, tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

2. Choose Add Account

3. Select Other option in the below menu

4. Choose Add Account 

5. Specify Name, Email Address, Password and Description to identify your mailbox (you can configure multiple different mailboxes in iPhone)

6. I tried configuring IMAP settings but was not successful for some reason, so choose POP and continue with the following configuration

POP Configuration:-

Host Name              pop.secureserver.net
User Name              <Enter your full email address>
Password                 <Enter your email account password>

Host Name            smtpout.secureserver.net
User Name           <Enter your full email address>
Password              <Enter your email account password>

7. After making above configuration, Save the settings. If you are not successful, you need to switch off SSL.

Note: I had configured 2 godaddy accounts in my iPhone – one account was successful with SSL while other account thrown below error. As specified in this Godaddy article for Email Troubleshooting for iPhone,  I switched off SSL for later account and was able to authenticate to Godaddy server.

so if you get an error similar to below (pop.secureserver.net is not responding) then switching of SSL would solve your issue.
