I am working with a client who currently has Office 365 email already setup before he had hosting. I made him a website with a contact form but it will not send the email to his Office 365 email. I tried it with a Workspace Email account that I created to test the PHP code. It all worked so I know it's not me. Is there a way to integrate between the Workspace Email and the Office 365 email or can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Hi @dvnxsh. Welcome to GoDaddy Community! It's difficult to say for sure what's happening here. If the same form works with one address but not another, it's likely an issue on the receiving end. It would be good if you could clarify exactly how the message is being sent. Providing a link to the form would probably help as well. My first guess would be that somehow the sending IP is being blocked by Outlook/Microsoft, but without more information, it would be difficult to confirm that.
I am still having this issue. My contact form uses PHP to send mail to the client and I know on GoDaddy hosting, an email can only be sent to an email that is used with the domain name. I.E.: firstname.lastname@example.org. Like I said I created a workspace email to test the PHP for the website on a contact form that the PHP code is attached too and it sent to the email I created with a workspace email. Now, the client I am doing this website for already had Office 365 through GoDaddy and that was already setup. So when I changed the delivery account in the PHP code for the contact form of who that form would go to it is directed to his email. His email does have the domain as the destination so it should work with GoDaddy. But every time that we try to send an email through the contact form to his email, he does not receive it and it is not in his spam. Is that any more clear?
We are having the exact same issue as well. It used to work without problems, but it stopped working two days ago.
Did you figure out what the issue was?
Microsoft recommends that an spf1 text record be added to the domain's DNS - I believe it is:
"include:spf.protection.outlook.com" to prevent spoofing.
After reviewing this forum - https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1977084-office365-godaddy-spf-setup seems that this is really not necessary since all emails sent from GoDaddy go through the server "secureserver.net" regardless of whether it is a GoDaddy Workspace email or O365.
Doing a little digging, this GoDaddy server already includes Office 365 servers nested a few levels deep. So to make this short, all you really need to include on your txt spf record is the following:
"v=spf1 include:secureserver.net -all" or use "v=spf1 include:secureserver.net ~all" for a soft fail, but watch for spoofing.
I included a (the domains hosting IP address) and mx (the Mail Exchanger record on the domain) in the spf record to be safe. My final record looks like the following and appears to be working.
v=spf1 mx a include:secureserver.net ~all
