You'll want to start here: https://domains.live.com/

You'll be prompted to sign in with your LiveID, and you'll use this to manage your account. Then you'll be presented with the admin center:

Click on "Get Started" under Custom Domains. Enter your domain name:


Click Continue.

Then accept the agreement.

Review settings and accept agreement
Please confirm your request. You will always use this Windows Live ID to administer this domain.
Domain: geekstogo.com
Mail service: Windows Live Hotmail
Administrator: (Change user)
Clicking I Accept means that you agree to the terms applicable to your program.

Next, it will present you with instructions for creating a DNS records to setup mail, prove ownership, and create server trust. Many people get tripped up on this step, but it's not terribly difficult. You change the DNS records at your registrar where you registered the domain. For example, GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.

It will likely take a couple hours for the DNS settings to propogate. After this is done you'll be able to return to the Windows Live admin center to create users, setup email clients, etc.
