Can not at MCP site login by Yahoo mail account anymore? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a MCP ID with a Yahoo mail account for a few years. Today, I tried to login from https://mcp.microsoft.com/mcp/ but it keeps telling me 'The email address or password is incorrect. Please try again.'

    I confirm I keyed-in the correct email address and password.

    Can not at MCP site login by Yahoo mail account anymore? How can I fix the problem?

    Thanks!

  • The user reported this problem on 21st February and the MCP site was working then (I always log on and check when people report errors).  The maintenance period is for 22-24th February.  After the reported issue.

  • The problem you're experiencing is not a MCP site issue.  It's a Yahoo issue i.e. the password you are entering for the email address is wrong. 

    If the credentials you were using to access the MCP site weren't recognised, you'd be welcomed with a "First time user" screen asking you to associate your MC ID to your account.

  • Bluefall,

    It might've been due to the site being down for maintenance (albeit a bit earlier than posted), double check the email account you've associated with your mcp,  your password  for that account, and then try back, according to the post below:
