    I deleted my old microsoft account in order to use it as an alias for my Xbox Account, but...


    I deleted my old Microsoft account and used that same email as an alias, and when I tried to login using that email, it said that the account didn't exist. However, when I tried to make a new account using that same email, it said that the email was already in use.

    How can I use this same email on both my Xbox and my PC?

    :)

    Change gamertag email on Xbox One

    I changed the email on my gamer tag by signing in to microsoft live account, creating a new alias and assigning it as the primary account, then deleting the old alias.

    Is it possible to move Xbox Live/Games for Windows Live Gamertag from one MS Account to Another Microsoft Account Email?

    Many thanks for your detailed explanation!

    I'm confused about this part.
    "Note The email address that you enter can't already be in use as a Microsoft account alias."

    That means I can't for example create a new outlook email address and attach it as the primary alias for my current Xbox Live gamertag? And if that's not possible for example and instead I attach a non Microsoft email address, what if I then delete my Microsoft
    Account? It says that if I request deletion I have to wait 60 days.

    If after 60 days my Microsoft Account and live.co.uk email gets deleted will I be able to login to my Xbox Live account using the new email address that is changed for it as the primary alias? This part I am confused and need some clarity before I decide to
    proceed.

    Because if the old existing Microsoft Account is still somehow linked with my Xbox Live Game profile and I then delete it and this erases the Xbox Live Gamertag+profile this will be a disaster.

    Xbox Profile Email

    Hey there JacybPorter,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the forums, when you update the primary email address (alias) to a Microsoft account you are simply replacing the old one. Unfortunately there is no way to actually move the Xbox profile to a new Microsoft account.

    Just be aware that replacing the alias will delete the old one and replace it with the new one, in other words if replaced it will delete your dads alias and replace it with the new one.

    You can find more information by following the link below:


    I hope this helps.

    Transfering xbox account info and data to a new one

    Then, as an alternative, can I change the email that is linked to the information? Or somehow link two mails to the account?
    You can
    change the email associated to that gamertag
    , but you can never delete the old email or all information is gonna be deleted. This is know as "alias" this means that you create another alias (email address) to the same Microsoft Account.

    I deleted my old microsoft account in order to use it as an alias for my Xbox Account, but now I can't login using the alias. Help!

    once you delete a microsoft account then it is closed, that is also the xbox account as they are one in the same.
