microsoft account email is wrong - can't login, can't recover password


This is a strange one, don't know how this happened - i'm a dad here, who doesn't go near the xbox except to set up stuff for my son -

basically my microsoft account is set up for an email i don't have access to  - I can't log in to my microsoft account because it's registered with a yahoo email that ends .com - but my email is .ie - otherwise it's the same user name - i think my email used to work for both .com and .ie but now it's just .ie - set up a new microsoft account for .ie - but need the old password for old microsoft account which is .com to change to new account which is .ie -

Basically my current Microsoft account is for an email I have no access to...

Anyone come across anything like this before?

Hey there!  OK, so if I'm understanding correctly: you have all the info for the account.  You know the email and you know the password, but you just don't have access to the email?  In that case, I would recommend using a console to swap the Gamertag over onto a different email.  Here are the steps to do that: Can I switch my gamertag to a different Microsoft account?

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
