I went to add an alias to a forwarded address (managed by GoDaddy, ie firstname.lastname@example.org) in Gmail, and I noticed that Google changed their system. In the past, after you entered the name and email address, you'd get a screen like this:
However, now they seem to be requiring SMTP information:
I did some research and contacted GoDaddy, but it seems that you have to register an actual email address, not a forward in order to add it as an alias in Gmail.
It should be noted that all aliases to forward addresses that I'd previously set up work fine, I just can't edit them or add new ones.
Does anyone know of a workaround for this or why this would have changed? Thanks!
