What To Do When Go Daddy Will Not Work In Outlook

If you work in an office, you probably use Microsoft Outlook to send and receive emails. Majority of office work is accomplished from the email client program itself. However, you will notice that you will not receive emails from your GoDaddy email account in Outlook. Outlook 2000 will not work with Go daddy unless you make certain changes to the email client. Do not heed to OmniTech Support scam that advise you to download third party application to make these changes.

Certain tweaks can be done to your Outlook email client in which you will have to change the ports used by Outlook to send and receive messages. Upon doing so, you will be able to troubleshoot the issue and receive GoDaddy emails in Outlook. GoDaddy’s SMTP relay system uses "25," "3535" or port "80" when sending email messages. Most of these ports are usable with the exception of “25” which is blocked by some Internet Service Providers.

Here’s how you change the port numbers in the Microsoft Outlook support account setup screen:
  • Open Outlook program using the Start menu. When the email client loads up, click on the Tools menu which lies on the top of the screen and then click on Accounts.
  • Click on the Mail tab and then select your GoDaddy email account from the list of email accounts you have set up in Outlook. Click on the Properties button to make further changes.
  • Click to enter the Advanced tab and type in 3535 into the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) text field. This setting will lie under the Server Port Numbers heading.
  • Navigate to the incoming mail server port field and then check if the port number is set to 110. If not, do so inside the Incoming Mail (POP3) text field.
  • Click on the OK button and then click on the Tools menu. From inside the new set of instructions, click on Send/Receive and then Send/Receive All.
  • Check if you are able to send and receive emails. If you are not able to do so, repeat the steps above and then try changing the port to 80 and try again.
If you follow these set of instructions to the word, you will be able to change the port settings of Microsoft Outlook 2000 and receive GoDaddy emails. If not, you can contact our tech support team and make sure you do not contact OmniTech Support scam. Outlook support will not work with Go Daddy unless you change the port settings. Hence, it is advisable to seek assistance from our support engineers if you are unable to make the required changes all by yourself.
