  1. Get Live email address and connect that to existing Microsoft account


    Good morning all,

    I have a Microsoft account and I use my Gmail address L: example@gmail.com to log in. I also use this Gmail address as my main email.

    Lately I have started to move away from google and therefore would like a Microsoft L: example@live.com email address as my main email and also use that for my Microsoft account.

    Seems like an easy task, but I am kind of lost how to accomplish this.

    All help and advice is very welcome

    Thanks

    Bo

    :)

    Unauthorized Emails from my account?

    It is more than likely that your email account was hacked, either by a virus sniffing your password, or just simply hacked.

    Either way, change your password on your email account. Unfortunately the damage by already be done. They already have your contact list and your email address associated with that contact list. There is nothing stopping them from sending out emails using their own SMTP servers to everyone on your contact list and claiming the emails are from your email address. They don't actually have to have access to your yahoo account or even any yahoo server to send emails to people that come from your address.

    Change email address for Microsoft Account

    Hi William,

    To better assist you with your concern, we'd like to get the following information:

    • What is the domain of your existing email address?
    • What is the domain of the existing email address you were trying to add an alias?
    • To clarify, you've mentioned that you want to change the email address of your Microsoft account, what type of email address do you wish to replace it? Is it Gmail, Yahoo mail or other?

    Looking forward to your response.
