I FINALLY GOT THE ANSWER! I ALSO HAVE A GODADDY EMAIL ADDRESS AND USE A HTC TOUCH PHONE FROM SPRINT. I've entered the following settings and my email now works like a charm! This is for a POP3 email address, not an IMAP email address.
You cannot send the email unless you have a sprint email address. Email must go through the Sprint server in order to be sent (incoming mail does not).
Call Sprint Tier II (877.345.7895) and ask them to set you up with a User Name and Password for the outgoing mail server. All the rest of the settings are as follows:
EMAIL SET UP
Email Address: You@YourGoDaddyDomain.com
the password you use to access your go daddy account
Check SAVE PASSWORD
UNCLICK TRY TO GET EMAIL SETTINGS AUTOMATICALLY FROM THE INTERNET.
Your Email Provider:
Your Name: Dales Wife
Account Display Name:
'GoDaddy Email" or whatever you'd like to call it so you can identify this account (you can have several email accounts sent to your phone).
Incoming Mail Server:
Again enter You@YourGoDaddyDomain.com
Enter your password again
Check SAVE PASSWORD
Outgoing (SMTP) Mail Server:
CHECK Outgoing server requires authentication
UNCHECK Use the same user name and password for sending email
Advanced Server Settings:
DO NOT Check: Require SSL for Incoming e-mail
DO NOT Check: Require SSL for Outgoing e-mail
Click DONE to return to previous screen
Outgoing Server Login: TheNameGivenToYou@sprintpcs.com
When you call Sprint Tier II they will ask you what password you'd like.
Check Save Password.
I use every 5 minutes and it doesn't seem to run my battery down.
This has been driving me crazy for two months now so I really hope this information helps somebody else out. Best of luck! NOW, if anyone knows how to remove those annoying envelopes when I access my mail - I could use the help. There are three envelopes there (one for GoDaddy mail, one for Outlook and one for Picture Mail.) I do not use Outlook or Picture Mail and would love it if I could remove those.
