    getting into the new email thing

    they want me to come up with my password for windows outlook express in order for me to sign into the new email thing for windows 8.
    but i got this computer about 5 years or so ago and when i set the outlook express up then that was the last time i used the password. so i never wrote it down, because i never thought there would come a day when i would ever need it again. but i just went to where i have my internet and email and ask for my password and was told it would cost $80.00 for them to recover it. forget that. i said no, they hung up.

    would it just be easer to have frontier shut down that outlook express
    account and open a new email account using this new microsoft email?

    you can't do a password reset on that old account?

    If you want to start a new email account and associate it with the Microsoft account, no harm in that. You can associate any email account with your Microsoft account (gmail, hotmail, outlook, yahoo, etc.).
