Google Apps for business just shut off the free version other then the free trial.  However, for $50 per year, you are not going to find a better service.  Microsoft also has outlook.com.

Any other "free" email is not going to be any better then godaddy and that has a lot of other issues because of how it is shared.

Spend the $50 claims on gmail.

If you are looking for something free you will have to host it yourself.  First thing, you need to make sure you have a static public IP.  If you don't have this then you are looking at paying someone to host.  Below are a couple free solutions for hosting your own email.

Keep in mind that email is a super complicated beast so if you don't have any experience with hosting your own email it will be well worth your $50 to buy Google Apps for Business.

Does GoDaddy require that you use Webmail?  I believe they support POP/IMAP access, too.  If so, download the Thunderbird Email client and connect that to your GoDaddy Email account.  Free, and easy!

Otherwise, I echo the above sentiments -- you do NOT want to be hosting Email yourself.  You'd spend WAY more on hardware, storage, spam filters, AV filters, etc. than you'd save...

@bsharath, I think what you are asking should be on a separate question as there could be many reasons.  But as a hint:

1) It can take 10 minutes to 2 days for email to propagate.  I found working with google apps it averages less then an hour.

2) Google apps puts your domain in temp mode.  Did you remove temporary mode and make it live?

3) check your mx records at mxtoolbox.com to make sure they are pointing correctly.

Also, make sure you add spf and all that good stuff.
