No matter from where you buy your Domain Name majorly all the good domain providers gives you 1 or 2 email ID’s Free with each Domain Name and If you are just starting its a good way to save you money.
In this method there are few limitations depending on the provider. The major constraint which i have seen is the disk space, usually you get Disk Space in MBs which is very less and once you grow they ask you to upgrade to premium version.
To be very honest it’s pretty enough space to start with and migrate later as when required to higher version.
