Microsoft announced yesterday the brand new Outlook.com, a new public email service. With a sleek Metro UI, and new services, it’s worth trying it.
But why if you want it for your custom domains ? Can we do this ? Yes, and it’s dead simple :).
1. Register for live for domains
Go on http://domains.live.com, and create an account. When you have done all the DNS things (changing MX, and SRV records), you will enjoy 500 free email accounts, on hotmail. It just takes 5 minutes (+ dns propagation time)
2. Upgrade to outlook.com
As any hotmail.com account, you can decide to upgrade in the options menus. That’s it. Note that’s is a per-account upgrade. If you want 10 accounts on outlook with you own domain, you have to repeat this step 10 times.
