I too have has issues with godaddy ssl certs not working.
I have managed a workaround by downloading the cert and manually editing the file.
The copy and past function did NOT work for me.
Feel free to contact me off list if you wish and I'l dig up the procedure.
It's not too complicated, and has been working great for me.
Also of note, my co-admin also purchased ssl certs from godaddy.
He had no problem with cutting and pasting them in surgemail...
Go figure :-\

(of course this causes a problem with the certificate and requires us to add an exception for the certificate).
