IDs powered by Windows Live Hotmail.

This follows the announcement of its first custom domain Lokhandwalarocks.com in May and the enhancements to Windows Live Hotmail, including increased storage
limits to 5 GB.

"Microsoft will continue to reveal more new custom domains for users over the next few months and also look at feedback from users and communities to provide
its users more personalised e-mail IDs on demand," a company statement said here.

Various categories on www.coolhotmail.com will list a number of custom domains that describe users' personalities, indicate where thy live, personify their
tastes and so on.

A user can therefore pick and choose an e-mail ID that truly reflects his or her personality for free.

is important to have an e-mail ID which is unique," Microsoft India's Country Manager (Online Services Business) Jaspreet Bindra said.
