Domain with GoDaddy and setting up email with Windows Live Mail - so confused

I would be extremely grateful for any answers to this question.  I purchased a domain from GoDaddy with a .com address and when I spoke to them I was under the assumption that I had to use them for my email provider for the domain.  I purchased a package from them which includes setfing up of up to 5 emails, it all seemed good until I was told I could have set up my extra email address in Windows Live Mail and just changed the server settings.  Could someone confirm that this is correct?  If so, I will have saved over $300.  Thanks in advance.  Kay

Hey @Kmanuel,

 

Yes it is possible to have your email directed to another provider while still using our hosting. It generally requires a DNS update on settings like your MX records to point to the other mail provider. You can find more details on making DNS updates here
