    Hello @alihassan


    From what I know you will need to replace smtp.gmail.com with relay-hosting.secureserver.net as you can see here: https://uk.godaddy.com/help/what-is-the-name-of-my-hosting-accounts-relay-server-953

    I'm not exactly sure where, so you will have to figure that part by yourself.


    Good luck.

    There is not option to change smtp.gmail.com to relay-hosting.secureserver.net


    So how we can we the issue? Maybe you need to open this port? Becouse I found info that Godaddy block this port 587
