1) Most importantly.  This is a public forum, in which anyone can access.  Never post personal information, such as email addresses here.

2) To have security proofs sent to your  Gmail, do the following:

  • Sign into your Account Summary page using your Microsoft email (not  your Gmail account).
  • Under "Password and Security info", click on "Edit Security Info"
  • Click "Add" under "Alternate Email Address"
  • Now enter the Gmail address into there.
  • Now click "Save"

The security info will now be sent to your Gmail account.

Do what I described above, and they will send the code.

You have to do that to proof you are who you say you are, and not someone stealling your account.

Also, just so you know, we here on the forums aren't microsoft employees, and can't respond to your demands just because you get angry.

Things don't work that way.

Understand you are upset but please don't post profanity or personal information.  I'd wager that going into any other forum or place of business talking like that your post would have been deleted.  In the interest of helping you secure your account I've edited it out.   Also this is a public forum so posting your personal email especially the one you want to use for security isn't advisable.

 

As Zen has stated there are checks in place to make sure account holders are the only ones who access their info.  They are outlined here.

Look at it this way, if someone came in here and made a post like you did but gave their email for your gamertag and MS honored it your account would be stolen and then you'd really be swearing.

 

Hope that helps and thanks.
