    Not sure what is meant by it will be disabled. By whom? Possibly you can follow guidance here.

  • I have been using mvps.org email as login account for many years. But mvps.org will end their email service by this year. Thank you for the link.

  • Ok, yea I got that notification as well. If that email is used with your Microsoft account then it may be all you need to do is add a new alias email account and set it as primary, then start signing in with that. I just use my gmail address as primary.

  • Hi Dave,

    For the links. I already tried to add alias, but receive "The email address is already taken" message. Any other suggestions?

  • You may have used that previously and it is stuck in recycling or worse yet is someone else aliased it. I had that happen with an apple ID. Someone mistakenly linked to my gmail address making it useless to both of us forever. I'd use the links here to email or chat with someone.

  • I can add yahoo email as alias but gmail. The yahoo email is always slow. I can't figure out why I can't add the gmail.

    It's because it has been previously used. You'll have to chat with them to find out details.
