  1. Microsoft Account


    I have closed an account that I can no longer use. How can I stop all the messages that there is something wrong with my account and they keep referring to the one that I closed? I click cancel to keep it closed but it still goes back to the closed one. Thanks.

    :)

    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
