Changing primary email RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys. I know that changing email should be simple. Believe me .. I have tried. I have logged multiple support emails to microsoft to assist, and the bottom line is they say it can't be done if the system is not allowing.

    My problem with this response is, clearly it can be done, or the option to do so would not exist. I've tried, they claim they have... the end. my primary email listed is defunct and I was attempting to change FOUR MONTHS before it was discontinued. 

    in the end I keep getting message that I am unable to change my primary email right now, please try again later. 

    This should be a no brainer to the brain tanks at MS but it eludes the customer service staff and those reading my emails so far. Have made attempts up to, and including today. Made an online chat enquiry on Saturday, and.... you guess it... it cant be done, and I am (as ever) refered to the page that deals with changing alias emails.

    If there is anyone who knows how to get around this, please let me know.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.

  • What product or service are you trying to change? If you're asking about a Microsoft account you can create an email alias.
