Hotmail goes international

Although Microsoft has offered its MSN Hotmail email service in various countries for years, this week the company announced that many international customers will now be able to get country-specific Hotmail email addresses. New Hotmail users in Germany, France, Italy, Japan, and the UK can now get country-specific addresses. "If you live in the UK, instead of getting an email address, you'll be able to get one," Microsoft Vice President Brian Arbogast said. Previously, users could get only email addresses, the company says. Hotmail currently has more than 287 million active email accounts, making it difficult for new customers to find a meaningful email address.

I need to send an email to a address to someone in Greece from the USA. Will I need to change their email address by adding GR to it?
I never sent an email to another country before.
Thanks for any help.

I have tried to open a hotmail account from Nigeria, but it keeps rejecting me on grounds that I cannot name a US State of residence. What is the solution to this.
