I started my company 2 years ago, went through GoDaddy for my domain and Microsoft Business 365 accounts. I have purchased my laptops from a big box store. When trying to set up a laptop for an employee, it requires me to use a microsoft account but I cannot use my work emails for this. Is this a laptop issue or a email domain issue that is prohibiting me from doing so?

    As a work-around you could try creating a local account.

    then add the microsoft account.
