    There are a few threads here on GoDaddy IMAP on the Mac.

    Not sure if there is resolution. Sounds like only some have problems, which makes it difficult to pinpoint the problem.

     

    I wouldn't consider matching settings between Mac and iPad/iPhone being necessarily correct. Two different systems. Just because Apple develops both doesn't imply they are the same, with same capabilities.

     

    When you add your account in Mail, does it set up automatically filling in outgoing and incoming servers for you?

    If so, try adding it manually. On the first page of adding an account, fill in the info, then hold down the option key and click Continue. You can then manually enter the details as per the GoDaddy instructions: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/4874/using-apple-mail-with-your-email

    I took note of the statement in your reply to jlhoop "On the first page of adding an account, fill in the info, then hold down the option key and click Continue. You can then manually enter the details as per the GoDaddy instructions.." Because if I could get to the option to change automatic selection of iMap, that would solve my issue. Where do I find "Continue"

    to click it. Is it a key on my keyboard (which)? Or should it show up in

    the dialogue box when I hold down the option key (it doesn't)?

    The button name has changed to Create, and when you hold down the Option key, it changes to Next.

    If you Add Other account in Internet Accounts, choose Mail account, then click Create. On the next sheet is where you enter the email address and password, then hold down Option and click "Next."
