Use Outlook.com for free custom domain name email accounts

Outlook.com is a really good option for startups, small businesses, or other small organizations on a tight budget -- Microsoft’s best-kept email secret is an online tool that allows you to connect any custom domain to its shiny new Outlook.com back end, for personal or business mail. It’s free, and it works amazingly well.(source infra) -- Have a domain name you would like to use for a custom email address but don't want to pay for a Google Apps or  a Microsoft Office 365 account? Best way to go for most people is to set that up on Outlook.com through Windows Live --

Why I use Outlook.com for my custom email accounts (and how you can too) | ZDNet: "I could have chosen Google Apps for Business or Office 365, but either of those options would have meant a hefty annual bill: $50 per user for Google’s solution, $48 per user (and up) for Microsoft’s plans. (Those Google Apps accounts used to be free for up to 10 users, but Google dropped that option last year. If you set up an account before the cutoff date, you're grandfathered in, but there is no longer a free Google version for custom domains, only for Gmail.com addresses.). . .
