Is it possible to leave my Nameservers with GoDaddy, but let Homestead host my email?

I already have Homestead for a website and email hosting.

I have setup a second company on GoDaddy and have used their Site Builder to setup a site for my second company.

How do I have Homestead host my email for my second domain, without moving the Nameservers to Homestead?

Thank you!

Hello, 

Here are the email DNS that you need to input on GoDaddy's side:

Thank you ElyzabethV!  I have the DNS settings on my GoDaddy account.

But how to I create an email address within Homestead with my new domain?

Homestead only gives me 2 options to add the domain:

1. I can move my entire domain to Homestead

2. I can move my Nameservers to Homestead.

However, my website is hosted with GoDaddy and I want to leave it there.  So I don't want to do either of the options.

If I try to create a new email address within Homestead, my only option is to add one with my first domain name.  It will not let me type in my new domain name as an option.

Any suggestions?

Oh, yes, you will need to add your domain as a pointing domain in your account, but you can do that without actually updating the nameservers. It will work as long as you have the Email DNS I provided. Follow these instructions except for actually changing your nameservers:
