Interestingly enough the forum itself can send emails ie: alerts and notifications.. from email@example.com through Gmail however manually sending an email from the actual email client results in return to sender.(turns out i can send emails from that address manually) And as i mentioned previously the email client hasnt recieved a new email in years..
I've set these emails up through my cpanel and at this point i believe it has something to do with an improperly setup email nameserver.. I'm wondering if its possible that because i use google as my domain registrar and their control panel is vastly different then godaddy..
At any rate i'm only guessing and i really have zero idea why its not working ive been trying for over a year to fix this on my own with zero success.. The server is dedicated if that matters..
Please someone throw me a line this is a problem i just cant seem to solve on my own..
