    Microsoft live accounts - alias - not showing mails

    I have a live account with this email: name at with all my mail (thousands)
    then i created an alias: realname at
    and this is now set as the primary alias

    this means that the mail app in Windows 8.1 (login: name at defaults to: realname at

    and I can't see any of the mails (from: name at in the mail app.

    How do I get this to work ??
