I've redesigned a website for a client and am soon to set it live.

However, his business emails appear to be hosted with Hotmail and I need to create a couple of new email accounts.

He has told me that he originally used Microsoft Small Business to create the accounts, however it was then replaced by Office 365.

I've tried logging into Office 365 with his email login details and can't find anywhere to manage email accounts. I also can't find any guides on how to do so on their help pages or even on Google.

Could it be I'm looking in the wrong place?

I'm familiar with how to do this kind of thing on Google Apps, but I didn't even realise there was a Microsoft equivalent until now.

Kindly advise him to switch to Google Apps. – user221287 Nov 30 '13 at 4:06

You can go with outlook.com. They do have support for custom domains. Just head to http://www.domains.live.com/ and sign up. You will get all Microsoft services for your domain.

thanks, I've logged into that with my client's login details. There seems to be a few more options but I still can't find a way to add additional email addresses unfortunately? – pealo86 Nov 30 '13 at 12:39
I think you are looking for this. webdev777.com/2013/08/… – Ankur Mhatre Nov 30 '13 at 13:22
ah thanks! That seems to work, think I just needed to click the 'get started' link whilst logged in. A bit misleading considering the email accounts were already set up in the first place! – pealo86 Dec 1 '13 at 17:24
