Godaddy Email Account Setup

Set up a Godaddy email account

Configuring a POP3 e-mail account on Windows 10 Although most of the Windows 10 applications supplied have already won their rightful shares of the bad news, some of the key elements of the jigsaw like the mail and calendaring applications have proved to be a useful addition to the overall portfolio. We' ve already shown you how to get your Gmail account up and running in the mail application, but if you run your own email servers or hire one from another vendor, creating a POP3 email account can be a little more complex than a default one.

How to drop your POP3 customized e-mail into the Windows 10 Mail application. In order to get started, you need to connect to your web servers to find out what they have. In case of inbound e-mails the email usually looks like "pop.[emailserver].net", without parentheses. For example, my email servers (hosted on GoDaddy.com) hide these email adresses in the "Server Settings" section of their email administration page.

You should note the email adress of anything that looks like it contains the suffix "SMTP" for the email outbox. In this example, GoDaddy also uses "smtpout.secureserver.net" to process all queries for outbound or sent emails. Once you've found and logged the correct email locations, open the Windows 10 email application from either the Start Menu or your application listing.

Here you will find the Settings symbol in the lower right of the mail application. Then click on it and select "Accounts" from the pop-up window on the right. Here, the drop-down menus show you a listing of all the current Windows 10 application associated with your account.

Click the "Add Account" button with the plus symbol appended and you will be welcomed by the following message. If you want to include a POP3-based account, please click "Advanced Setup" in the available vendors drop-down menu and it will be shown below. Once you've clicked on it, you'll be taken to the following screen, where you'll need to make the selection for "Internet E-mail".

Once you've chosen Advanced e-mail, you'll need to fill in any information you've received from your third-party e-mail provider. Start by choosing a name for the account that Windows can use to identify it, and then distinguish it from any other provider that you may have previously added. Next, type your combination of user name and passphrase that will take you to the servers and retrieve any email, calendars, or alerts that may be saved in your mailbox.

Then, connect the incomming POST server information (after selecting POST3 from the drop-down menu) and the sending POST IP adress. Fill out a blank should look something like this, with the user name, login and account information, all of which are complete and operational. You can also change preferences in this pane, such as whether the sending machine requires authentification when you are sending an email, whether SSL is needed for inbound or outbound messaging, and whether the same user name and passphrase is appended to all your outbound messaging.

When the account is successfully added, you should now see it in the right pop-up pane that shows all those connected to the Windows Mail eco-system. Once the mail application has confirmed that your account has been traversed, the best way to check if the email is actually working is to either have a test email sent to you by a good friend or create one yourself from a third-party account.

I decided to use the Gmail webcast to test if my POP3 is correctly set up to accept email from external adresses. Windows 10 Mail application is a comfortable way to keep all your different email account in one place across tens of different service offerings and third-party vendors, and setup is as simple as one, two, "POP3".
