There are plenty of places will do the mail hosting for you.  For
example, Godaddy lets you register a domain name for $9/yr, and lets
you do email for $10/yr.  They also have a free email option, which
will likely be good enough for many people.

No.  First, there is no "free email option".

Yeah, you are right.  The "free email option" that I noticed is for
people who have webhosting with GoDaddy also.  I confess that I didn't
investigate it closely, I just noticed it when I was doing some domain
registration stuff.

                                              Second, the "$10/yr"
option provides 1 mailbox per domain, which isn't going to be terribly
useful unless the local-part is specified as "postmaster" as required
by the Hosts Requirements Standard (and the implementation had better
treat that local-part as case-insensitive), or is a "catch-all" (in
which case it will catch a great deal of dictionary-attack spam).

There are many other email service providers out there.  I suggest you
go look at all the options.

More important, you are still conflating *receipt* of email with the
independent action of *sending* email.

Uh, no I'm not.

Yeah, I can hear it now "yes you are!"  "no I'm not!"

bah.  I have more productive things to do.
