    How do you add another Microsoft email account ?(even any other email


    Well, just downloaded the Windows 10 today and want to add another email account. This one is a microsoft one(my husband's)-we just want to check the mail on it not sign in with it. So, how do you add another email account without having to sign on to it? I tried to put in my husband's so we could check the mail-he does not have a computer. And it tells me that it is not the same as I signed in with and won't do it. There has to be a way.

  2. Update Email (Don't have access to my old email)

    I'm trying to update my email for my Microsoft live account, but I have to verify my primary email to even add another email. But... how can I do this if I don't have access to my old email???

    For security reasons, you need to verify your primary alias before you can add another alias.

    Calendar Sync Windows Phone

    With outlook, Hotmail, or live.com as the Microsoft account on the phone the calendar and contacts sync by default. I guessed you already had a outlook, Hotmail, or live.com account already setup as the Microsoft account.

    Like I said, any email address can be used as the Microsoft account, like an email address from Comcast. It has no calendar, just email.

    If you reset the phone, enter this email as the Microsoft account and then add the first outlook, Hotmail, or live.com account you have currently to the phone in settings, email+accounts, add account, Use the outlook add for any of these.

    With this account you will still have you original account contacts and email. You will have the option to not sync the calendar to the phone.

    You do not need another outlook account.

    Even though these accounts come from Microsoft you should not think of them as the "Microsoft account" in settings, email+accounts. The entry in "Microsoft account" on your phone is the main account on your phone and is used in all phone features like app
    purchases.
