Google Gmail is a very powerful webmail, also free, advertising-supported, pop3 and IMAP service provided. Gmail users also can import from other webmail like Yahoo!, hotmail, or POP3 accounts. That means we can send and receive email with gmail interface.
Godaddy, the world’s largest domain name registration US web company, provides the free Email credit to their domain registers—users can create Email account which the domain registered on Godaddy with this credit.
As a Godaddy user and have been using Gmail as my email client, I tried the new Gmail SMTP feature to send messages from the external server of godaddy. But when I try to configure the SMTP server from inside Gmail account, I get the following error:
Your other email provider is responding too slowly. Please try again later, or contact the administrator of your other domain for further information.
I asked to Godaddy and Google why, Godaddy said it was not problem of theirs, because webmail and other Email clients like outlook all worked fine. Google suggested me try to SSL. I checked the Godaddy SMTP information, oh, thanks GOD, it supports TLS. Then changed the setting like following “Always use a secure connection (SSL) when sending mail” checked and port 465. Sending mail work fine!
