Outlook.com: Linked accounts are separated in late July

Microsoft can die linked accounts , with a focus on future alias accounts. Microsoft introduced the 2006, a so-called linked accounts. Here it was different mail accounts between which you could switch without specifying a password, since these were indeed linked to each other and thus authorized.


But that is now closing time. Microsoft explained that the step that will change our world. Not only that, many accounts of individual users are often poorly protected, and also the individual e-mail account is becoming more and more important since it is the key to a myriad of services. Thus one does not necessarily need dozens of different accounts, because by the alias function you anyway at Microsoft a whole bunch of different addresses.

Account owner with linked accounts will be notified in the next few days via e-mail so that they can take further action. Also you will get to see a message when you log into a linked account. What changes for the user? Actually, very little – except, of course, that he must then also enter the password to re-login to another account, since the end of July, the account linking is repealed.

Who is lazy, can set up a redirect in his account anyway. And let it be said to you: if you Outlook.com uses, then you rather creates an alias . So you have a mailbox for many addresses and does not need you having trouble with different mailboxes. If yes in 2013 😉
