    Outlook.com was a magazine website which was named before Outlook Magazine.

    Microsoft was using live.outlook.com for its mail.
    If you type outlook.com it's redirected to outlook mail.

    You will not be able to find outlook.com magazine website.if anyone finds the website let me know.

    Citrix own Cloud.com. They're a separate company. Beautiful name though for sure.

    They bought teams.com recently, so hopefully that makes up for them not having cloud.com :-$

    They've been using outlook.com for years for mail since they switched from Hotmail.com, to Live.com and then Outlook.com.

    It's very likely they acquired it, dictionary word domains were always a rarity ;)

    This was OutLook.com in the 90s

    Magazine site? No, but looks like a tech journal. It was owned by Andrew Seybold Consulting i.e. Outlook4Mobility
