Two Microsoft Accounts linked to one Gamertag

I recently changed my Gamertag (Gamertag A) and wanted to change the email address associated with it (Microsoft Account A). The email I wanted to use (Microsoft Account B) was already linked to another Gamertag (Gamertag B) so first I had to change that. After successfully changing the email linked to Gamertag B to a third Microsoft Account (Microsoft Account C), the email previously attached to Gamertag B should have been freed up to use on Gamertag A. You following me?

However, when I try to change the email of Gamertag A from Microsoft Account A to Microsoft Account B, it tells me Microsoft Account B is already linked to another profile. Now both Microsoft Accounts B and C are linked to Gamertag B, preventing me from using the email I wanted on Gamertag A (and subsequently getting rid of Gamertag B and Microsoft Accounts A and C)

Basically, when I log in using it I can use two different email addresses and it logs me into the same Gamertag. When I changed the email address something seems to have gone wrong and now both the old and new addresses are connected to the same Gamertag.

Help? Please? All I wanted was to change the email of my Gamertag and get rid of everything else, the Microsoft proof system has made me wait 30 days to get this far and I won't give up at the last hurdle.

Hi there,

the best thing to do for this issue is to contact Xbox Support, since it shouldn't be possible to have one gamertag attached to two e-mail addresses. They should be able to take a more in-dept look and have ways to solve this issue.
