Enable SMTP Authentication

SMTP Authentication is used to send email from apps, reporting servers, and multifunction devices (like printers and scanners). 

NOTE: If you enabled security defaults, turning on SMTP Authentication will automatically disable those settings for your organization. 

You can either continue using multi-factor authentication (MFA) with an app password or disable MFA for the user.

Required: You need admin permissions to manage SMTP Authentication.
  1. Sign in to the Email & Office Dashboard (https://sso.godaddy.com/?app=productivity&realm=idp&auth_reason=1&path=/%3F)(use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. Select Manage next to the user.
  3. Scroll down to Account information and select Advanced Settings.
    Advanced Settings
  4. Turn on the SMTP Authentication toggle.
