    I  am not receiving email notifications through my email that is on a godaddy server, but I can receive them on my apple account. How can I fix this?

    I figured it out. At least it's working now. For those hosting on GoDaddy, the JotForm fields are a little misleading (at least to me) for hostname, use smtpout.secureserver.net for port - 465 and security SSL also, rather than just put your name (as it suggest in JotForm setup), put your name as your email name. Example - yourname@yoursite.com Once I did some searching around on GoDaddy, this is what worked for me. Only took me 2 days to figure it out, but I think this should work if you are having issues!

    Hello @chris1322, thanks for sharing that info. This will surely help other GoDaddy users.

    I'm assuming you're referring to this guide when you said the fields are a little misleading. From how I see it though, the fields and labels we used on that wizard are terms commonly encountered in SMTP setups (e.g. hostname, port, username, password, protocol).

    We thank you for your feedback. And just in case you'd need more help, just open a new thread so we can assist you.
