Setting up your GoDaddy email on your iPhone can be done in just a few minutes, and it’ll make checking your email on-the-go a breeze. All you need is your GoDaddy email address and password, and you’ll be good to go. Let’s dive in!

Step by Step Tutorial to Set Up GoDaddy Email on iPhone

Before we begin, let’s make sure you know what we’re doing: we’re adding your GoDaddy email account to your iPhone’s Mail app. This way, you can send and receive emails directly from your phone. Ready? Let’s go!

Step 1: Open Settings

Find the Settings app on your iPhone and open it.

This is the app with the gear icon, usually located on your home screen. Opening Settings is the first step to adding your GoDaddy email account.

Step 2: Scroll Down and Select "Mail"

Once you’re in Settings, scroll down until you find the "Mail" option, and tap on it.

"Mail" is where all your email account settings are managed. Tapping on it will bring you to a screen where you can add a new email account.

Step 3: Tap on "Accounts"

In the Mail settings, you will see an option called "Accounts". Tap on it.

"Accounts" is where all your email accounts are listed. By tapping on it, you’re heading towards the section where you can add a new account.

Step 4: Choose "Add Account"

On the Accounts page, you’ll see an option at the bottom that says "Add Account". Select this.

By selecting "Add Account", you’re telling your iPhone that you want to add a new email account to the Mail app.

Step 5: Select "Other"

You’ll see a list of popular email providers. Since GoDaddy isn’t one of them, you’ll choose "Other" at the bottom of the list.

Selecting "Other" allows you to manually enter your GoDaddy email account settings.

Step 6: Tap on "Add Mail Account"

Under the "Mail" section, tap on the option that says "Add Mail Account".

This is where you’ll enter your GoDaddy email account details.

Step 7: Enter Your Email Information

Now, you’ll be prompted to enter your name, email address, password, and a description for the email account.

Make sure you enter your GoDaddy email address and the password you use to log into your GoDaddy email account. The description can be anything you like – it’s just to help you identify the account in your Mail app.

Step 8: Enter Incoming and Outgoing Mail Server Information

Scroll down and you will see fields for Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server. Enter the information provided by GoDaddy for these servers.

GoDaddy provides this information in your account settings on their website. It usually involves your email address, password, and server names like "".

Step 9: Tap "Next" and Wait for Verification

After entering all the information, tap "Next" in the top right corner. Your iPhone will verify the information with GoDaddy’s servers.

This might take a minute or two. If there’s an error, double-check the information you entered for any typos.

Step 10: Choose Data to Sync

Once verified, you can choose what data you want to sync: Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Notes. Toggle on “Mail” and any others you wish, then tap "Save."

Usually, you just need to have "Mail" toggled on, but if you use GoDaddy’s contacts, calendars, or notes, you might want to sync those as well.

After completing these steps, your GoDaddy email will be set up on your iPhone’s Mail app. You’ll be able to send and receive emails right from your phone. No more logging into GoDaddy’s webmail interface!
