Setting the Auto-responder option for a Godaddy email

Posted on 2008-11-11
Last Modified: 2013-12-02

I have a couple of email accounts with the Godaddy hosting account (for my different websites) and I am trying to set up the Auto-responder option for them. When I try to send a test email something does not work, as it doesnot send the autoresponse email to the person sending the email and at the same time I am providing a failure notice message. This applies for all the emails I am trying to set up.

This is the failure notice message that it shows:

We're sorry. There's a problem with the e-mail address(es) you're trying
to send to. Please verify the address(es) and try again. If you continue
to have problems, please contact Customer Support at (480) 624-2500.

    Accepted Solution

    Assuming you're using some type of GUI to set the auto-responder on your godaddy email account, I'm afraid this is a question that should be directed to's tech support at (480) 624-2500.

    Based on the error message you provided, the best I could posit (guess) is that the email address you're sending FROM is the same email address you're sending TO -- thus, the message is looping within the mail system.

    For example, if the message is both TO and FROM abc@domain.tld, and you've configured that account to reply with an error/vacation message, then the reply will go to abc@domain.tld -- which generates a vacation message to abc@domain.tld -- which generates a vacation message to abc@domain.tld -- and so on.

    I hope this helps!

    Actually the email I am sending FROM is different than the email I am sending TO.

    I will contact Go daddy to get more assistance on this.
