If you are a Microsft office 365 user with an exchange license, sure deal, you are able to use a custom domain email address thus replacing the default onmicrosoft.com email. This feature replaces the once free windows live custom domain email address hosting which allowed one to create up to 50 free custom domain email addresses, which was retired many years back.
It should be recalled that after Google closed its free custom domain email address hosting, a free application pack which used to allow domain name owners to set up 10 custom email addresses and host them free on Google servers, Outlook’s free custom domain email was taken as an alternative.
And after a few years, windows live custom domain email hosting service also closed the free service where it required one to upgrade to office 365 in order to take advantage of the above. No matter what your problem with regard to email is, for example your current hosting IP address being blacklist by some providers like Gmail or any other, this tutorial will help you to get started to creating your office 365 custom domain email address provided you follow the simple steps below.
