Microsoft now allows you to sign-in with an alias on Outlook.com, offers 32 new email address domains


Along with the announcement of enabling two-step verification for your entire Microsoft Account, Microsoft has revealed that Outlook.com will now allow sign-ins using an alias. Microsoft is also offering 32 new email address domains for Outlook.com.

For those of you who signed up on Outlook.com with an email alias, Microsoft is now allowing you to sign into Outlook.com using that alias. Microsoft is finally allowing this feature based on consumer feedback. Microsoft has also made it easier to manage your aliases.

“We’ve heard from a lot of you that you love using Outlook.com but you wish you had more flexibility signing in. Many of you have added an email alias to your account, but you can’t use the alias to sign in to your account. Previously the only option was to permanently rename your account, which is a hassle and requires you to reset certain devices,” Microsoft explained.

Microsoft has also added 32 new email address domains, so you can rock an @outlook.com email address specific to the country of your choice. “But we also heard from some of you that you’d like to be able to have an @outlook address that is unique to your country (e.g. @outlook.de),” Microsoft stated in an official blog post. Take a look at the list of domains below:
