    Verify your email, how can it be this difficult?


    Hi All,

    Just trying to verify my email, which isn't my hotmail account. However, I click the url within the email and it then wants me to login to my account. I attempt to login to my usual Hotmail account and it then tell me incorrect email.

    Should I only be signing up with my hotmail account? If so how would I change this?

    Thanks

    Alex

    Hello Alex,

    You would need to use whatever email address and it's password you used instead when you created the Microsoft account.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yes thats exactly what I thought I did. But when I access the email and push the button to confirm it tells me its wrong.

    Have you already tried to log in with both addresses to see if one or the other may work?
