Outlook.com to Support 32 New Domains (But Not .co.uk or .ca)

UK gets left out of the mix.

In August of 2012, Microsoft began to move away from 16-year-old Hotmail with the launch of Outlook.com. However, while Outlook has seen quite a bit of activity (the service saw one million users on the first day alone), it seems some folks wanted their Outlook account to better reflect their country of origin. In response, Microsoft today announced 32 new international domains.

"We've been delighted by the reception to the new Outlook.com service. Many people have chosen to create new @outlook.com aliases, and as we previously discussed, many people have switched over from other email services," said Microsoft's Eric Doerr. "But we also heard from some of you that you'd like to be able to have an @outlook address that is unique to your country (e.g. @outlook.de), so here is the list of new @outlook email domains that will be available in the next few days," he added, going on to list all 32 countries and their domains. Check out the full list below:

  • Argentina - outlook.com.ar
  • Australia - outlook.com.au
  • Austria - outlook.at
  • Belgium - outlook.be
  • Brazil - outlook.com.br
  • Chile - outlook.cl
  • Czech Republic - outlook.cz
  • Denmark - outlook.dk
  • France - outlook.fr
  • Germany - outlook.de
  • Greece - outlook.com.gr
  • Israel - outlook.co.il
  • India - outlook.in
  • Indonesia - outlook.co.id
  • Ireland - outlook.ie
  • Italy - outlook.it
  • Hungary - outlook.hu
  • Japan - outlook.jp
  • Korea - outlook.kr
  • Latvia - outlook.lv
  • Malaysia - outlook.my
  • New Zealand - outlook.co.nz
  • Peru - outlook.com.pe
  • Philippines - outlook.ph
  • Portugal - outlook.pt
  • Saudi Arabia - outlook.sa
  • Singapore - outlook.sg
  • Slovakia - outlook.sk
  • Spain - outlook.es
  • Thailand - outlook.co.th
  • Turkey - outlook.com.tr
  • Vietnam - outlook.com.vn

Unfortunately, it seems .co.uk and .ca didn't quite make the cut, and Microsoft hasn't mentioned whether or not more international domains are on the way. We'll keep you posted, but it looks like .com will have to do for now.

    Jane I don't want to sound rude but maybe try to type outlook.co.uk in your browser's address bar and you will get the answer why it's not on the list.

    aisalem: My thoughts exactly! If you're going to report a story, surely it's common practice to investigate things as part of journalism to make sure your facts are straight? The first thing I did when i saw there was no .co.uk was think "hmm, i wonder why that is, lets see if there is already another site using it"
