    MS account email always ends up in upper case


    Hi,

    Ever since I've linked my MS and Skype account, my email is now always "seen" as something@ LIVE.COM.
    Even my Windows Phone when I sign in with MS account, it gets recognized as @LIVE.COM at the end.

    It's slightly annoying, I've checked all my settings on the web/computer/phone.. Nothing does the trick. I do sign in with lowercase email, but it somehow gets changed to uppercase LIVE.COM on it's own.

    Anyone else experienced something like this?

    This is a screenshot of switching local account to MS. Note that name before LIVE.COM is in lowercase, and I did sign in with all lower case email.

    I've also asked on Microsoft answers webpage, but they have no idea what I'm talking about

    I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and Nokia Lumia 930 (Cyan).

    Any kind of tip is greatly appreciated.

    Edit: add a space after @ in email to break the link.

    Sounds like it's just a simple advertising gimmick, draws more attention to live.com.

    It does really look like it. Like I said, it's slightly annoying, especially the part about sending emails - the sender's mail ends with upper case live.com.

    I have no idea to whom can I turn to about his problem. Guess I'm back to spamming MS forums.

    Thanks.

    Regards
