Forward Go Daddy email to gmail

Does anyone know if it’s possible to forward the Go Daddy email to a gmail account? I see that I can forward gmail to Go Daddy email, but couldn’t find the opposite.

You can setup a “Carbon Copy” address on your email with us, which essentially just forwards a copy to any address that you choose. You can set this up in the Email Control Center and this article will show you how:
Hope that helps! Have a good day.

Godaddy unfortunately does not allow you to forward to another email account from a godaddy email account (unless you purchase a forwarding account which has other issues attached to it). Disappointing since other hosting companies do allow this i.e. hosting.com.
You can however set Gmail up to retrieve email messages from any email account, and for free.
Under Gmail Settings, go to “Accounts and Import” and add your Godaddy email account info (server, port, username, and password). If you are in the U.S., your incoming pop server will most likely be “pop.secureserver.net”. For more on setting up pop email for Godaddy: http://help.godaddy.com/article/4715
Once that is set up, you should begin getting emails from your godaddy email account. Gmail also lets you respond from your Godaddy address, within Gmail.

All of our domain registrations and hosting plans are provided a variety of free services, including email forwarding. Here’s how to setup a forwarding account:
Also, if you are using the web based email application for your email, you can program it to receive mail from other POP3 accounts with different providers.

If you use a forwarding account on Go Daddy, however, you can’t set up Gmail to send mail from that account on Gmail itself, through that account’s SMTP servers.
For example, let’s say I purchased the domain name, http://www.example.com, on Go Daddy, and then got a forwarding email account firstname.lastname@example.org. If I wanted to, from my personal Gmail account, be able to send mail from email@example.com using the example.com SMTP server (so that recipients cannot tell it is via Gmail), I am unable to, because there is no “password” associated with this Go Daddy email account.
Isn’t that correct?

Keep in mind that a forwarding address is simply that, a forwarding address. If you wanted to do this, you may consider creating an actual address with a CC to your Gmail account, or use your domain with Gmail services by modifying the MX records.
Hope this helps,

When I try to set up forwarding on my existing godaddy email account, it says “that forwarding address is already in use” but I don’t recall setting this up. Can you help?

So I set up a forwarding account for a person using a google apps email account. The domain I am setting up the forwarding address for is not the same as the google apps domain if that matters. I keep getting an MX record error. Any ideas?

further to @lori123 above, I’m still confused why I can’t use an email address I’ve already set up – isn’t that the point of using a forwarding service? And what is the difference between seting up a forwarding service and a CC?
JasonP said 1 year, 8 months ago:
A forwarding address is simply an address that forwards to a specified email account. It does not collect email, it simply passes it on.
An address collects the mail in a box that you can review. If you have a CC setup, any mail that is sent to the address will go into the box and be forwarded to a specified address.
As they have different functions, you cannot have the same ID setup as both a forwarding and email address.

I wouldn’t recommend using forwarding at all. Because Gmail supports email with custom (own) domain. Forwarding just adds steps of unreliability to the chain.
I have been having problems using (GoDaddy’s european) forwarding just yesterday. Because Yahoo doesn’t allow (for free) usage of custom domains.
