How do I change the email associated with my forum accounts? RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the profile and under facts and questions, no where is there an explanation on how to change my email address on my accounts. I no longer use the email associated with all the forum accounts I have and want to change it . How can I do that?

  • There is no method to change the microsoft account associated with an MSDN/TechNet forums profile. You can however change the email address for notifications (Quick Access\My Settings\Configure alerts)

    You can also add an alias to an existing microsoft account and then logon with that new email.

  • Thanks so much. I was constantly logging in and out of two different live.com accounts. I hope I can do that everywhere. Over the years, it looks like I have two or maybe three MS forum accounts!
