Sending emails from personal/business Gmail account

I'm trying to send emails from both my personal/business accounts on Gmail, But I get an error:

SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: Connection refused (111)

Here are the options:

Host = 'smtp.gmail.com'
SMTPAuth = true
Username = 'mygmailaccount@gmail.com'
Password = '******' SMTPSecure = 'tls' Port = 587

 I executed the same code on another website hosted on another hosting and it worked fine, After searching it seems that Godaddy is blocking sending emails from other mail servers.

 

So I tried the following options:

Host = 'relay-hosting.secureserver.net';
Port = 25;
SMTPAuth = false;
SMTPSecure = false;

But the email was sent to the 'Spam' folder.

 

I have been trying for days now without any success.

 

So how to fix this issue?

Re: Sending emails from personal/business Gmail account

Hi @mdev_mdev. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! It's true that you would not be able to send email from a hosting plan with GoDaddy using an SMTP server other than relay-hosting.secureserver.net. I'd recommend taking a look at the suggestions on this post to help with mail delivery issues. Hope this helps.
