accounts.live.com/AddAssocid

case sensitive

oh, but you wanted an alias in the outlook.com domain?  append: ?fl=nd

from within the outlook widget

mail.live.com/mail/default.aspx?rru=createalias

will generate the alias, create a user named folder, and create a filter rule

the redirect unescapes to

https://account.live.com/AddAssocId?ru=https://%5Bfarm%5D.mail.live.com/mail/?mkt=en-us&rru=inbox&fl=nd

| [farm] is where your account lives

find other URLs

duckduckgo.com/?q=site%3Alive.com+account.live.com
google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&q=+site:live.com+account.live.com

duck is handy especially as they’re the only useful interweb search to offer POST requests via SSL.  translation: the site URL does NOT reveal your search terms

google wishes to control who receives what ancillary interweb data from searches with SLL but has ZERO intention of increasing user privacy with POST
