    Hi, there are some free hosting companies I am testing and some of them do not allow emails for parked domains. So I just wonder if you could host the site within a free host and configure the email to be working in another free host or payed. For example, domain would be in godaddy, the site hosted on free hosting company 1 and the webmail in free hosting company 2. How do you configure that in godaddy?

    Yep, normally you can modify dns for your domain - so A record should point to the ip of your host, and mx record should point to the ip of your mail provider.

    Yes this is possible

    You will need to point the MX records to remote server where you will host emails

    In Godaddy just create one A records for say mail.domain.com and point it to remote server by setting up A record and then change MX record for the domain name to this newly created mail.domain.tld
