How to create a custom Email ID for your domain in Hotmail


  1. Interesting indeed however I just couldn’t keep myself from asking why? I was thinking that if you own a domain, you probably already have email provided by the host / on your server.

  2. @Rick I have used the webmail client provided by the web host and I found it inadequate. Also some of them such as Godaddy has set a limit on the number of email IDs that can be created. But if we set the mail this way, you get all the features of Hotmail plus the ability to create more number of IDs as per your requirement.

  3. Nithin,

    Wow, I’m glad that came accross this site and thanks for providing this information.

    I’m going to set it up with a current domain that has no email service and will let you know how it goes.

    Thank again,


  4. Hi,
    It is a very great article on How to create a custom Email ID for your domain in Hotmail. This is very helpful for a newbie like me. Thanks…

  5. Thanks – I knew this was possible, but didn’t know where to find the information. I have a domain at Hover and paid $20/year for them to host my email. However, I didn’t know at the time it is ONLY email, no calendar or contacts. So I may do this switch even before my year is out as I really enjoy all the live mail features.
