    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.
    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.

    Why is this still being ignored? Speaking directly about my situation, I use G Suite for my family domain. I'm grandfathered so I'm getting 5 accounts for email, storage, groups, etc. This works fine for us now, but with an Office 365 Home subscription on top of this, there's unnecessary overlap in many/all areas EXCEPT email. I contemplated moving to Office 365 Business Premium to get access to the email component, but the price point is far higher than I can afford and it includes services I'd end up turning off (more so than I do for the Office 365 tenant at work) - I can't see the need for SharePoint, Flow, PowerBI, Powerapps, etc. Hopefully this makes sense. Hopefully others who've commented are referring to the same situation. Hopefully Microsoft is listening.
