How to Set Up GoDaddy Email on Droid

Save

Most people use Android phones like the Motorola Droid in conjunction with a Gmail account. But Android phones also include a vanilla email client, allowing any email service -- like Go Daddy's SecureServer email -- to work with the phone. Although the vanilla email client isn't as fully-featured as the Gmail app, it's comparable to the built-in email solutions on the iPhone, Windows Mobile and WebOS platforms. You'll need your email and website login information to finish the setup.

  • Turn on your phone and press the "HOME" button. Open the App Drawer and tap "Email."

  • Press the "MENU" button, then tap "Accounts," press the "MENU" button again and tap "Add Account." If this is the first time you've added a non-Gmail account, skip this step.

  • Type your email address -- including your Go Daddy domain -- and password into the fields. Check the box next to "Send email from this account by default." Tap "Manual Setup."

  • Tap "POP3 account." Enter your email and password again into their respective fields. Type "pop.secureserver.net" into the POP3 server field. Type "995" in the Port field. Tap the "Security" menu and select "SSL." Tap "Next."

  • Type "smtpout.secureserver.net" in the SMTP server field. Type "465" in the Port field. Tap the "Security" menu and select "SSL (Accept all certificates)" Tap "Next."

  • Select the amount of time you want between server checks -- lower times mean that email will come in faster. Tap "Next." Enter "GoDaddy" (or however you wish to identify the account to yourself) for the email name field. Enter your name or alias for the Name field. Tap "Done."
