Does the DOT (Period) matter in Outlook Emails

Does the dot (period) matter in outlook.com email addresses like *** Email address is removed for privacy ***?
 
For example, would both email's reach the same person?
 
*** Email address is removed for privacy ***
 
 
 
With gmail, they are one in the same.

Hi,

 

Adding a period (.) to your email address will be recognized as a different account in Outlook/Hotmail.

 

Thanks!
