    Changing the Email used for resetting the password


    Hey all,


    as the title implies, I am wanting to change the email that Microsoft uses to change my password. When I go to manage aliases, the only email I see is the email I prefer. However, when I went to reset my password, one of the options was an older email that I am not longer using. How can I switch this to the email that I prefer?


    Thank you

    :)

  2. Hacker Keeps resetting my Live email password.

    I think he is trying hard to get to my Steam account again. Like I added in my first post I had a password reset for steam email.

    And last time he did it I had several password reset emails in my live before (I suppose) he got it to work.

    Now I don't even feel like my gmail is safe. I have it set up for Phone SMS and 2 step verification. Although I think he is having a hard time with my gmail.

    HOW IS HE DOING IT!

  3. Hacker Keeps resetting my Live email password.

    I don't know how this guy is managing it but he keeps resetting my password in live.

    I had a backup email trough gmail and he changed that too

    so then my gmail had a back email to aol and so I reset my gmail then I was able to reset my live.

    Next morning he reset my live again! I manged to get it back by using gmail again to reset it which oddly enough he didn't reset my gmail password this time.

    I have now since used a an extremmmmmleeey long password generated at random for live to see if that keeps him out.

    The scary thing is I have a totally unrelated other gmail account. Guess what I find in the deleted folder of my live account. A reset password email for my STEAM CONFIRMED TOTALLY UNRELATED TO OTHER EMAILS EMAIL ACCOUNT! It was all in dutch too with link (I didn't click on the links though). How did he figure that one out? Thankfully my secure steam gmail account hasn't had its password reseted yet.

    How is this guy doing this? My password were strong. I suppose i'll see if he gets in now with this new pass.

    Keep in mind this is a fresh reformat and my Firewall from my router is on.

    I've done scans anyway and everything is clean.

    EDIT: I'd also like to add I had a password reset email from steam in my gmail account. But I did not have my password reset for either my gmail or steam.
