๐Ÿ’ How can you create a free Outlook Account?

There are 2 types of accounts within the Microsoft ecosystem: a consumer account and a work account.

In this blog, I explain how you can use Microsoft's services for free through a consumer account.

Consumer Account = LIVE ID = The online identity that you use for an Xbox or other Microsoft services. This is for private use only.

A corporate or work account from Office 365: This is an account that you can only use with a paid license. Most licenses start at a few euros per month.

Create an account with a personal ID. Select -> create one.

If you already have an account it is best to test if you can log in at: https://outlook.live.com

It is also possible to go through account.microsoft.com; https://account.microsoft.com/account?lang=nl-be
