    Thus ends(..I hope...) the second round of headbanging after getting my new Mini(still love it...).

    I couldn't get Mail to setup a working account w/ GoDaddy mail.
    I tried a slew of reccommended settings from countless posts, but here's what worked. Found at GoDaddy's Frequently Asked ?'s in the web/email section:


    To set up a working account-
    Mail Menu- click Preferences
    click "+" to setup a new email account
    Select "POP"
    enter description of acct
    Full Name: enter your full name
    Email Address: enter the email address(full)
    "Continue"
    Incoming Mail Server: mail.domainname.com (or "biz", "org" or whatever your's is called)
    User Name: **I had to put my full email address here, not just my user name
    "Continue"
    Outgoing Mail Server: For GoDaddy, I had to select/enter "smtp.secureserver.com"
    (don't click "use authentication")
    "Continue"
    (done!)

    **Before setting up Mail accounts, I went to GoDaddy and changed the following settings on my email accounts:

    under "Outgoing Mail: SMTP Relaying"
    change the "Relays per Day" from "0" to "250"
    then I had to wait a little while for my account settings to be updated

    I HOPE this helps save somebody lots of headaches! :)

    smtp.secureserver.com?

    Hey...

    I JUST setup my website as well..

    You sure you used smtp.secureserver.com?

    The ones I've tried so far.. with no luck are:

    smtpout.secureserver.net
    smtp.secureserver.net

    Did u have to change the port numbers?
