    I have set up the godaddy email using the workspace per the forum AKA secureserver.net and I still get the follwoing error:
    Connect to Mail Host
    Unable to connect. The server said:POP3 connect: Error [113] [No route to host]

    I can connect to the email using Godaddy’s webmail or outlook

    Godaddy seems to think it is a flaw in the plugin but i have used this plugin on multiple other ISP and hosts.

    The “No route to host” error implies that there is something happening at the DNS level.

    Can you get shell access to the server? If so try the troubleshooting steps here: http://postieplugin.com/faq/postie-wont-connect-mailserver/

    Well GoDaddy is trying to say it is the plugin but after a 2 hour session with a hosting tech they set up a different WP installation with all the same plugins, test and ……IT WORKED. so not they are escalating again for the 5th time to have the server configuration repaired.

    RESOLVED!!! Issues is Share environment can have blocking if originally configured wrong or using GoDaddy site builder.

    If anyone has this issue this is what we actually had to do.
    1) Back up the html files via FTP and the Database
    2) reset the domain
    3) not you have a fresh domain Cpanel
    4) Create a database, name it same is the DB before (your DB backup is named that)
    5) Import the DB from the backup
    6) Create a new user and password assigned with full access tot he Database
    7) Edit your wp-config file for the user and password generally line 25
    8) FTp all the public_HTML files up
    9) set up the emails using Cpanel not workspace!

    Test it now it should work

    Nice. Thanks for the write up.

    jknow, I am having the same issue with 2 GoDaddy accounts. I just purchased a brand new account just to see if I could get this working. I have access to 5 accounts and about 7 websites and 5 out of 7 work.
    I tried your suggestion about setting up the email using Cpanel but still no luck. I already have this working with both GoDaddy email and Gmails on other accounts. Did you do something special when you set up the email through CPanel. GoDaddy tech support can’t seem to help and Wayne explains it’s a GoDaddy issue.
    Thanks for any other suggestion.
