    You can use your own personal email with a personal domain to connect to any type of Office 365 subscription, including Office 365 Home. Office 365 Home relies on a Microsoft account for authentication. A Microsoft account can be created with any personal domain email, it is not required to be, etc. Once the Microsoft account is created using your personal email, you can use it to activate and sign into your Office 365 Home subscription.
    If you don’t have a Microsoft account, go to the Microsoft account sign-up page and click on Create account. In the User name box enter your personal domain email address you wish to use. Fill out the rest of the form and click Create account.

    I have 10 custom email addresses and since the decommission of the user portal I was not able to manage this address space anymore. My two brothers married and I was not able to give their wives an email address in the family's email domain.
    Now, all the sudden, the logon with these custom names did not work anymore, without any notice. We did have to find a workaround with using a pre-defined domain name ( for a new login name.
    As of today, my Outlook (latest and greatest Outlook 2016) does not connect to the service anymore, except for some minutes each day, non-predictable.
    Establishing a new profile does not work at all anymore. It fails with the custom domain name and when using the new alias logon name ( I get an error that the name is not in any address list. This hint is not helpful and does not provide a solution to the problem which has been caused by the service provide alone.
    I hope this will get better now that will be part of the paid Office 365 service.
    Fortunately, and weird enough, there are no problems with mobile devices, only with Outlook 2016 on my PC.
