Last week, we reported about Microsoft piloting Outlook.com Premium which will come with custom domain support. We can now confirm the list of advantages of using Outlook.com Premium over a regular Outlook.com account. With Outlook.com Premium, you can get up to five personalized email addresses, an ad-free inbox, and more, and it is free with your Office 365 subscription.
Outlook.com Premium features:
Five personalized email addresses: Get personalized email addresses like [email protected]* for up to five people. Your new email syncs with your existing Outlook.com mailbox, so there’s no additional setup.
Staying connected has never been so easy: Share calendars, contacts, and documents with ease. Sharing relationships are set up automatically between the people who have email addresses on your domain.
An ad-free inbox: Outlook.com Premium has no banner ads, so you can enjoy a distraction-free view of your email, photos and documents.
Powered by the new Outlook.com: Gain access to a new, modern inbox that includes enhanced security, privacy, and reliability features. Outlook.com gives you new ways to collaborate, manage your time, and get things done.
If Microsoft is going to give away Outlook.com Premium for free with Office 365 subscription, I think customers are going to love it.
