Change email address linked to my account

   Is there any way to change the email address associated to my account even though I do not have access to it or know the password. The reason I do not know either of these is because the email address was entered in wrong when my account was made about 4 years ago and I have forgotten the password I entered. Now that there is so many extra features that can gained by having full access to my account. 

   So is there any details I can give Microsoft support allowing them to verify my identity and change my email address and password?

If you do not have the WLID and password for an account, you're pretty much out. You can try calling phone support (support.xbox.com/contact-us) and if you can otherwise prove ownership of the account to them, they might be able to help you out. Let us know if that helps, thanks!
