    XBOX Live Account - Email Address


    Hi.

    My XBOX account that I currently use was set up years ago on my brothers' email address. I am trying to find out if I can change the email address that is associated with the account, but when we have looked at this option in the past, it says that the old
    email address will be deleted and we don't want to go down this route as this email address is associated with other accounts on different platforms and websites.

    Is there a way to change the email address without it deleting either accounts or any progress?

    Any help is appreciated as it is stressing me out!

    :)

    Account set up

    if your email address is a Microsoft email (@hotmail, @live, @outlook) then you wont be able to remove your account from the Xbox account.

    removing Microsoft email accounts from Xbox accounts permanently deletes the email account and you will no longer be able to access it

    all you can do is add an alias email address then promote that to be the main email address.

    Wrong email entered when first signed up for live, what now?

    You will need to change the email address on the "dummy" account to something else, so that is becomes free to use with another account. Then you will be cable to change the email address on your main gamertag using this
    email address.

    To change the email address, go on your Xbox, select Account Management and then Windows LIVE ID.

    Utterly overwhelmed trying to figure out how to link my gamertag to my Windows 8.1 Live account :(

    Unfortunately there is no way to merge to accounts. But you can add your new email address to your existing live account.

    Easiest way is to add your new email address to the Microsoft account where your gamertag is bounded to. Then set this email address as primary address there. Before you can set it as primary email address you have to delete your new live account of course.
    You will then be able to log in to your pc and to your Xbox with the new primary email address.

    You can do this at: http://account.live.com

    New xbox but already have live account.....

    As additional information

    there can only be one xbox live account connected to an email address, so to create a different xbox live account you will need to use a different email address.

    Also be aware that a gold subscription is per account and is needed for online game play.
