    This crap is pissing me off. I've setup many pop3 accounts with gmail and such via thunderturd!! For some darn reason it's failing to log onto my incomming pop3 server and smtp. Is there any settings in hostgators cpanel to enable this shit???

    If you follow the directions hostgator gives you in the cpanel interface it works 100% of the time.

    Don't really know what else to say. Follow directions?

    Home Page:
    incoming and outgoing servers should be mail.<your domain here> Make sure that the port for the outgoing server is set to 25 or 26. Make sure that both incoming and outgoing have the "This server requires authentication" Option checked and that your correct username and password is set up in those areas. I believe that is it. If you need any help let me know.

    This is garbage, I know for pop and smtp it's mail.yoursite.com thats all, port 110 and 25/26 for smtp. Thunderturd says the damn mail server doesn't exist. Does it take a few for the servers to get setup?? If I switch em to hostgator I atleast get prompted for a flippin password.

    DNS Error: Domain name not found wondering if stuff has yet to propagated.

    Host gator isn't even setting anything up. I cannot even email my newly created hostgator account from gmail.. retarded DNS errors.. nothing is ever free lol not even for a month. host gator support better be quick darnit!


    Grr lol, just got a mail back from support and the houston code is only meant for houston residents. hence no account setup.. time to go make a houston account and hopefully it will work this time.

    Im having an issue along the same lines so I figured I would post here as well. Here's an image to show how I have my smtp set up:
    Code:

    The light goes green when I test the account, but when it comes down to sending it just says, "SENDING ASAP" and doesn't do a damn thing. Note: I can send email just fine through the browser, but I cant receive any mail. Any ideas?
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    With hostgator, it will automatically setup a catchall email and you can send but not receive mail. Setup a new username other than the default and it should work.

    I've tried using hostgator for mail before, 1 mail out, and they blocked me and emailed me to verify my account with ID or passport...
