Get country-specific Outlook Email ID like @outlook.in, etc

The popular free email service from Microsoft, Outlook.com also allows you to sign-up for country-specific email IDs. Microsoft offers several country-specific @outlook addresses. If you would like an email domain specific to your country, like outlook.in, outlook.de or say outlook.es, you will be able to get one.

Country-specific Outlook email domain

To get one, first you should visit Outlook.com and click on the Sign up now link given in the bottom right side. On the Create an account page, if you are offered a country-specific domain in the Username drop-down menu fine, you can go ahead and sign up. But the chances are that you wont see anything except @outlook.com and @hotmail.com options.

So what you need to do is, to open the country-specific msn.com page for your country. I am taking the example of India here, so I open in.msn.com.  In the top right-side, you will see a Sign In, link. Click on it.

All you need to do is, identify the msn.com subdomain for your country, visit it and start the process from there. This can work for you too.

Outlook.com users can also create an outlook.com email alias. Having an email alias is very useful, if you do not want to give out your main email ID to someone, and do not want to create a new one – but instead manage the account from your existing account. This way, you can use different email IDs for different things easily.

Our email account contains a lot of important mail, personal data, sensitive business information, etc. It is therefore imperative that you do not take your Outlook.com (earlier Hotmail) Sign In process casually. Go here for some Outlook Login  tips.
