Setting Up Free Custom Domain Email Addresses with GoDaddy and Gmail (2020 Edition)

Yes, I know that GoDaddy is not a great company to support given their SOPA / PIPA lobbying. That said, I’ve been buying domains here since I was in elementary school. I am a creature of habit, don’t yell at me you internet nerds.

Recently I went into the rats nest that is GoDaddy’s dashboard to setup a free email forwarding address for a side project. I found it fairly impossible. Thus leads me to this post.
