Hello,

When you change name servers the email records are switched over also. Verify that the Homestead email DNS records are present in the godaddy account to continue to use Homestead email. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/dns-records-for-homestead-email

Those are only the A records. You will also need to add the mx record and txt record in this article. https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/dns-records-for-homestead-email. Yes, this will connect the email to Homesteads server and work.

Unfortunately, I cannot guide you through navigating godaddys account as I do not have access to their system and am unsure where to go exactly. You will want to contact godaddys customer support for assistance with putting these settings into the account.
