Unfortunately, you cannot change your email address because there is no option for you to do it. The only things you can edit in your profile are the following:

  • Date of birth
  • Title
  • First name
  • Last name
  • ZIP code
  • Receive news and offers preferences

You will have to remove the old one and make a new one. Unfortunately, you can only use one.

You just need to uninstall and then reinstall your account. You may be transferring files that caused the system to clog somehow. As soon as you do a reinstallation of the account, it will continue to work as normal.

How can I make the phone stop showing emails?

You need to stop your push notifications. That's the reason why you are being alerted whenever you receive an email or when you have pending emails. You can set this up in your settings so that you won't be disturbed during startup. Without push notifications, you will only see new emails when you open the email app.

It will not actually delete those things when you delete your old password. Changing passwords and login info is actually normal, in fact it is strongly suggested to avoid theft of information. What you just need to do is go through the setup stage again. It will ask you what the old password was so you just need to input that first to prove that you are the real user of the device. After that, you just need to follow the instructions on how to setup the logins again.

I need to find a "sent" email in a backup that I have taken...can it be done?

I took a Windows backup is there a folder that sent emails are stored?

It depends on which type of email you are using. If you are using a web-based mail, you can easily just find the sent emails through the web-based portal.

On the other hand, if you are using Microsoft Outlook and you did a backup, you will often see this under "My Computer", "Documents and Settings", and then there will usually be a folder pertaining to your mails. In most cases, however, the file type is based on your email handle and you won't be able to open it as it is unless you install it back again into the email handler.

My Hotmail account will not stay synced?

This is a recent problem. I have removed the account and reinstalled it, several times. I guess the message that sync is not turned on and I have been syncing manually. However, even then the emails are not updated but hours or days behind.
