The new Outlook.com is out from Microsoft and it has quietly made a splash with a reported 1 million users in 6 hours. I am a Google Apps user and I have several email accounts that are not your traditional firstname.lastname@example.org but are email@example.com and are hosted on Gmail servers. The set up for regular Gmail accounts is fairly straight forward, the setting up an Google Apps account is not as intuitive for the average guy. Here is how you get it started.
First, go out to http://outlook.com and sign in with your Microsoft ID. If you don’t have one, now would be the time to get one.
