You can setup an own Mail server. Try something like MS Exchange when you are on Windows. If you are on linux you can try to setup an SMTP Server something like MTA. But you will need to configure a DHCP and DNS Service

Setup is at next level and very expensive by the way thank you

Nah, Get a Debian VM and run your own SMTP. Everything is OSS. Everything Free :)

For that you need to buy a domain & then you can use zohomail for emails on that domain. Zohomail is free but domain is not.

If you want completely free option then you can buy a free domain & then have email setup through several workarounds.

I have personally tried both methods.

Thats not a domain. You are using godaddy's domain. you can't use it for your emails.
