Host email for your domain at domains.live.com, for free!
This is very cool: now you can host email for your own domain(s) for free at domains.live.com. Just register a domain somewhere, add an MX record so it points to a Microsoft DNS server and you're ready to go (detailed instructions are available when you subscribe). The result is that you can read/send/manage email for email@example.com in a Hotmail-style interface. Domain names are pretty cheap nowadays, with this service on live.com having your own custom email address will be accessible for everybody.
Have us host e-mail and IM for you in a domain you already own.
- Create up to 20 e-mail accounts within your domain
- Get a 250 MB inbox for each account*
- Check your e-mail from any Web-enabled PC
- Junk e-mail filter protection using Microsoft SmartScreen technology
- Virus scanning and cleaning of e-mail
- Seamless access with MSN Messenger, MSN Spaces, etc.
The only drawback for Europeans is the small star on the second line; appearantly we only get 2 MB of space ... :-( Anyway, it's your turn google.
