Outlook.com

"These benefits activate automatically for all Microsoft 365 subscribers who have an Outlook.com mailbox associated with their subscription. Outlook.com mailboxes have email addresses ending in @outlook.com, @hotmail.com, @live.com, and @msn.com."

Does that mean that if you have say an outlook.tld other than those above you do not get these benefits? Does anyone with a none .com Outlook account know this / please do you mind checking?

Are there any other outlook domains apart
from .com and .org, with the latter pointing
to the former (AFAIK)?

Yes, the domain Outlook exists with many ccTLD's. I use one of those domains myself.

Yes, I can look for the article, it is on google.

It is possible to get a outlook.tld email but not hotmail.tld strange

Can confirm .tld also gets premium 365 but not sure about security features e.g. link checking?

Thank you. A pretty random selection of countries, but it disproves my point all the same.

Not that I need an extra account right now, but I wonder if you can just choose whatever ccTLD you wish without actually living in the country. I remember when I signed up (6 or 7 years ago) I had the choice between .com or my own ccTLD.

So I wonder, living in Belgium, if I could just sign up for an outlook.co.il or outlook.sa address (random examples) without having an IP nor address in the countries associated with those domains.

I had no issue.

Quite a few ccTLD's in the list are not available anymore

In the past I wanted an email address with .co.il and .com.tr TLDs as I have strong personal interests in those countries (even lived in Turkey for a while). But now that I already got several email accounts to check regularly, having yet another account to check and keep active seems a bit of a hassle. Still *slightly* tempting.

Back when it was live.com, there was a much larger selection of countries. You could create short emails, which was convenient before browsers auto-completed them.

Then I should be happy with my live.nl domain.

Very much so, that's a really good one!

I don't know why they now offer only a limited number of ccTLD's with the Outlook domain.

In the past, Yahoo also offered a long list of ccTLD's, they also stopped doing that (although people who registered a Yahoo.cctld address before new sign-ups stopped, can continue using it).

Imagine Gmail were using some ccTLD's, the potential for short and easy-to-remember usernames would be huge!

By default you can register @outlook.com , @hotmail.com and .tld from some countries

Some domains are not available for registration but existing email addresses continue to work and all MSFT email domains have equal rights.

For example, I own [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]

I had [email protected] but lost access to it at some point.
