  • Hi Cyclonexfp,

    If you haven't signed in to your account in a long time, it might have been deleted due to inactivity.

    You can refer to following articles to see if you can recover your Microsoft account:

  • Hi Perry, 

     Thank you for replying back. It looks like the 2nd link is not working. However I think my account has been deleted is there anyway of retrieving it back. Also if not is there any way I can recreate that email temporary so that they can send a quick email to that account so that I can update the information the other website needs. 

    Thank you,

    Cyclonexfp

  • Hi Cyclonexfp,

    @live.com accounts are no longer provided by Outlook.com online email service. Currently, we can only sign up @outlook.com account.

    You can create a Microsoft account via following link:

    https://account.microsoft.com/account

    I can understand your feelings that you may want to sign in some websites which bound to this email address. You may contact website support to see if they can help change the email address.

    Thank you for your understanding and support!

    Regards,

    Perry
