Need option for personal domains reinstated as stand-alone offering
We, as a family, have two existing Premium (not Office 365) subscriptions that allowed us to setup two personal domains on outlook.com without the need for multiple Office 365 licences and without any constraint as to who to use for the domain registration - which is key as we also have websites and other features on the back of this. I have two new domains for use as an amateur musician, and can't outlook.com for the email for these domains due to the changes made in the subscription model - as a result I have moved to Zoho for these, but would much prefer to use outlook.com. Without proper flexibility and sensible price points for custom domains, or at least support for multiple domains in an Office 365 Home subscription, and no limitation on which registrar is used for the domain, I will be forced to consider whether moving all my email use across to Zoho would be more appropriate and cost effective. Please make it easy for users with custom domains (and potentially multiple custom domains) to be able to configure outlook.com mailboxes to work with them - you obviously have the code in place as this continues to work with the old subscriptions!

Completely agreeing with everything said here. The whole Office 365 based premium option (with no other options) is overpriced, and so limited as to be a real problem. As a household, we have a number of domains (and probably adding some more) and I am seriously thinking whether we should move all of them onto another service given the frankly ridiculous limitations of the more expensive service (if you are using it just for custom domains).
