    Bug with E-mail Aliases and Xbox Live Accounts


    I’ve recently added an alias to my Outlook account and made it my primary alias. For most services this has caused no issues, however my Xbox Live account does not recognize the new alias as the same Outlook account for Xbox Live services, including multiplayer.
    It tends to disconnect from Xbox Live entirely upon signing in, even if I remove the account from my Xbox One and add it back with my either alias. Has anyone else encountered this issue? What should I do? Is a hotfix in order, perhaps?

    :)

    Bug with E-mail Aliases and Xbox Live Accounts

    Looks like it’s working now. I bet it has more to do with updating Xbox Live’s account info about linked e-mails than directly about the service, but the issue seems to have resolved itself after about a day with the new alias. Thank you!

    my account that I'm using recently was deleted

    Hello StingingChart,

    You can change your Account e-mail online also.

    • First go to account.live.com/.../Manage (You may be asked to login) You should be in a thing called "Account aliases"
    • click "add aliases"
    • add your new e-mail address (Choose "Add an existing email address as a Microsoft account alias" if it isn't a @live or @hotmail account "Yahoo, AOL, Etc.)
    • you will have to confirm that address by clicking the link provided in an e-mail to that address.
    • Once the e-mail is confirmed go back to Account aliases and set that e-mail as "primary"
    • Hope this helps, Good Luck

    Change My Xbox Live email

    There is a very simple way of doing this if not done so yet already

    Step 1. Visit http://account.live.com. And sign in with the current Xbox LIVE E-mail that is linked to it.

    Step 2. On the website given above click on Aliases

    Step 3. Add Alias you will be able to make a new e-mail address through this process

    You should then have the option to delete or keep the old alias, or make the new one the primary alias, though in my experience using the alias process you should be able to sign into your xbox live account with all aliases associated on that specific xbox
    account. If you want to just discard the old e-mail from your xbox account in that case it might just be an idea to just make the newly set up one the primary and the old one deleted.

    Hope this helped a little.

    Gmail Accounts should be able to be used for Xbox Live.

    You can use Gmail for your xbox live account. it can be used as an alias and a contact email address. go to
    http://account.live.com/ and click on "account aliases". There, you can add *** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. ***, etc.

    Good luck and Happy Gaming!
