    If it's true that I can have a custom domain but *only* with one DNS ... then I'm far more upset that MSFT wants $50 every year for 2 DNS entries.

    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.

    $12.50/user/month just for DNS MX support?

    Each member of my family has a custom domain (or two). I bought them for my children as soon as they were born. My wife & I are grandfathered in to Live Custom Domains. My children are not. My son may want an email address this year. I'd prefer to stick with Microsoft but $50 per year? I'll switch to not use MSFT I guess.
