Windows Live Custom Domains

In my previous post I said I will soon be trying Windows Live Custom Domains and this weekend I managed to have a play with it and I like it! Now I have all my emails for this domain on Windows Live and I can access my email via the Hotmail website, Outlook (will get to that in a minute) and can also have my email showing on my Windows Live home page which was one of my wish list items for Windows Live a while back nice!

I recently read on Lukas’s blogthe following:
“However their service with POP3 support is not free and a lot more expensive than even the Google premium service.”*

I can’t find any references to POP3 support whether free or not but you can use Windows Live Custom Domains with the Microsoft Office Outlook Connector which can be downloaded from hereand can be used with Outlook 2003 & 2007. I’ve just tried using the outlook connector and it seems to workwell with Outlook. Will update this post if I find any info on POP3 support.
