    I would go for Nsurname without hesitation!
    The shorter the better.
    especially when you have to spell it.

    I have found that Outlook offer different extension:

    outlook.com
    outlook.de
    etc....

    But they are all identical in functionality?

    Yes, they are identical. In Germany you SHOULD use the .de domain.
    But I like the .com better, so I chose this. It's all a matter of taste.

    And you should seriously consider buyin a domain name if its for your own business. That is way more professional.
    It's not that expensive

    he's right: you get them for 5$, get yourself a 25$ raspberry pi, an ethernet cable and a dedicated sdcard, throw in a usb stick, a couple howtos and you could have your own mailserver running over a weekend.

    That looks like an X.420 address if I ever saw one.

    Hornydevil666@gmail.com (probably taken, though :D )

    Dots in Gmail can be ommited so Name.s.surname@ is the same as namessurname, which is nice. I prefer that to underscores...
