Error Message Logging In with Account + Profile Migration, Scores, and Attendance RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello
    I am writing this message using a translator, I apologize for the errors.
    I have an @ hotmail.com account where I have my technet forum memberships and scores.
    I have another @ outlook.com account. This account is the main one I'm using today. It is this account that is associated with my Microsoft MVP Award.

    What I would like:
    Is it possible to migrate everything I have on my @ hotmail.com profile to @ outlook.com profile? Migrate my technet score and stakes.

    Tks.

    Marcelo Strippoli

  • Yes, there are alternatives; another option is to logon to MVP site and change your primary account there in profile or if questions about this then email MVPGA for help.

    As to the MSDN / TechNet forums profiles you can continue to use both, just be sure to register both in your MVP profile. Merging them is not possible to do. I'd work to using one or the other if it were me.

  • It isn't possible to merge or migrate an MSDN / TechNet profile to another profile. What you can do is create an alias.

  • But I can't create an alias for my existing @ outlook.com main account.
    This is bad. Is there no other alternative? I would like to centralize everything in one email address.

  • Perfect.
    I'll see if I can migrate what I have in the other accounts.
    Thank you!
