My Microsoft account is bond to a email that no longer work properly. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I do not know if this is the correct forum for the issue, but please advise.

    The provider of my email was extinct, and access to the email is not easy.

    The question is, if I create a Microsoft new account, how I translate my MSDN profile to the new account, or more important how to mantain reference to my threads ?

    They are very important for my recollection.

  • You can continue to use your existing account, and just update the email address configured for alerts. On the "Quick Access" menu on most pages, select "My Settings" and enter the email address you want to use for alerts. This is the only email address used in your account. In fact, my account also does not receive email and I have no problems.

    If you want to setup a new account, I believe your activities can be transferred, but I cannot find how to request this at the moment. You could email your request to fissues [at] microsoft [dot] com.

  • Here is the forum for you. Or this one.

    Do not create a new account yet, ask the MS support to help you to change the email address associated with your account. (I've been in your situation and done this already.)
