How to create an email address if you only have a domain?

    Hey guys,

    I've bought a domain at Namecheap and transferred it to Hostgator, where I have my Baby (shared) hosting plan.

    Because I need an email address associated with the new domain, I also bought (well, it's on trial) Private Email Hosting service (Open Xchange solution) from Namecheap, which costs 9.88 USD per year.

    However, I plan to have many email addresses associated with my new domain ([email protected], [email protected] etc.) and I don't want to pay for every email address that I create.

    So I wonder if it's possible to create simple "web-host" email addresses at HostGator for my new domain, even if it doesn't have a hosting plan associated with it?

    Basically: I have a domain only and I want to create email addresses for it. How do I do that?

    I'd appreciate your help. Thanks!

    OK, I think I figured it out. I just buy the domain, point it to HostGator, and create all the necessary email addresses. :) It wasn't working before, and it is now, so everything is cool.
