    Accounts and Aliases


    Recently, I have inadvertently added another Microsoft account (alias?) which has now become my main account (there is no remove option):


    Accounts and Aliases [​IMG]


    Upon trying to remove this account, this new account/alias does not appear in my Microsoft account:

    How do I remove the newly made account/alias and just have my original account (ie the bottom email address)?

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Microsoft Account, managing aliases: There is no 'make primary' link next to the email I would like to make primary

    Hello GI,

    There is a possibility that you are experiencing this issue due to a browser problem or due to some conflict with the Microsoft account settings. For us to effectively assist you, we would like to ask a few questions:

    • Could you tell us which browser are you using when you're trying to manage your aliases?
    • Have you tried using a different browser and check if you're having the same issue?

    To change your primary alias and to remove an alias from your account, you may follow the steps provided in this
    article. The article describes the steps on how you can manage aliases on your Microsoft account.

    We're looking forward to your response.

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del

    Email aliases

    Hello Mickey.Jim:



    Thank you for posting to the forum regarding your email question. It sounds like this is an issue on the Microsoft account end and not the phone's end. My suggestion is to sign into
    http://accounts.live.com and reorganize your account and aliases.



    I would suggest removing all the current aliases attached to your account. After they have been removed, readd them to your account. Please add the alias you would like to be your primary first. I might suggest not adding any others until you verify this
    is working properly. Once you have set up the new alias, restart your phone and monitor behavior.



    If you continue to notice issues with how you are receiving mails, just on the phone. Describe for us how things work on the phone and how things work when you check your email on a computer or tablet.



    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.



    Mark W.
