    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 Outlook.com/Hotmail.com, 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.

    I signed up for Office 365 Business just so that I can use my own domain with Outlook and Office Suite. I don't mind the price gap, but the most annoying thing about a Business account is that - it is NOT a Microsoft Account, which is totally ridiculous. As a result, the following issues happen:

    - I have to retain 2 accounts - one with a live.com domain and one with my personal domain. Windows 10 keeps saying I need to sign in using the live.com domain in order to better manage my laptop. No work or school account is accepted.
    - I have to use Skype for Business for my own domain account, and it is way inferior compared to Skype.

    - I can't set Onedrive to automatically upload photo to my Office 365, because, well, clearly it is just for work?!

    - Many of 3rd-party apps I am using doesn't recognise my Office 365 account any longer, because again, it is NOT a Microsoft account.
