    Gamer Tag and account email address


    OK, so I recently had the red ring of death on my 2nd xbox360, I have purchased a new one and cannot for the life of me remember the email address I used (it's been years since I had to actually login).

    Is there anyway to get my email address from my Gamertag?? All my saved games, all my sons' saved games are on my profile, but cannot access them at all. The information online is all over the place, had to setup a new account with 2 factor authentication
    just to get on these forums.

    Any help would be appreciated, I know the tag, had it ever since the 360 came out, would be a shame to lose it after all these years, plus all the saved games on the HDD that I cannot access right now as I don't have the login information.

    Regards, LB.

    :)

    So, how many of you are 10 year Xbox Live gamers?

    I started with the xboxlive beta with the headset and MotoGP disk, but I currently have a new different gamer tag due to my associated Hotmail account going inactive, due to not logging into email, and thus preventing me from renewing the live account. I had to create a new account while I went through the steps of recovery for the Hotmail address. Once recovered, I simply stayed with my new gamer tag... Now associated with the old Hotmail account. :-(

  3. Accidentally created a second gamer tag on same email as first

    first of all you can not have 2 different gamer tags on one email address so there must be a different email address associated with the original gamer tag your best bet would be to contact xbox support at support.xbox.com/contact-us and give them your gamer
    tag and if they can verify your account they can give you the email address associated with your original gamer tag

  4. Gamer Tag and account email address

    Okay, you could speak with xbox support, online chat or by the phone, give them the gamertag and they may look at the emails linked to them and ask a few security questions to identify you're the owner, also if the broken console has the Red Ring of Death,
    the hard drive can be moved, so move the hard drive into the new console if possible, if not, speaking to the support team is the best idea

    Losing Original email address

    It only shows the gamer tag . Not the email address associated with the account.

    Profile error on mobile device... please help!

    Each gamer tag is tied to a unique email address. Since you're stating everything is wrong, you're most likely using the wrong sign in email address for your account.

    Go back to your console, assuming that's where you see the correct Gamer Tag and such.

    Go to Settings > Account > Sign in, security and passkey and you'll see the sign in email address there for the account you're currently signed into.

    I NEED HELP TO DELETE MY ACCOUNT!! PLEASE HELP MEEE

    If you can, please go back and edit your post to remove your personal info "email address" from your last post.

    Each account will have it's own unique sign in email address and gamer tag.

    The "pillow" gamer tag is tied to that email address.

    Your other gamer tag "snowcat" is going to be tied to another email address. So that's going to be the trick is to see if you can find what email address you might have used for the "snowcat" account.

    The support here is provided by users, not Xbox Support.

    You can try and contact Xbox Support and see if the can help with locating the account by your gamer tag,

    im confused

    no one else can have the same gamer tag as you so there is no way for them to have suspended someone else with the same gamer tag.

    you may want to double check the email address that is associated with your gamer tag that is the email address that they would have sent the email to.

    if you are on a xbox one you can check what email is associated with your account by signing into the account and going to settings and under the account tab and go to sign in security and passkey and it will tell you there what email is associated with
    that particular gamertag.
