Sign up process was pretty easy with the following steps :-

  1. Choose a domain name own by you
  2. Change the MX record of the domain to point to hotmail server. You need to
    host your own DNS
  3. Verify MX Record
  4. Once that is done, you can begin to add users to the domain
  5. Users can log into to start using email
  6. Only 2MB of email space is given upon sign up. 250MB may or may not come
    later 🙂
  7. The process took about 15 minutes to complete.

Hence it will be AD supported via 2MB space is definitely grossly insufficient that render the box created useless unless 250MB space is given.
