Creating Outlook account


Thread Starter
Dec 29, 2015
I use G Mail all the time but decided (for reasons that are not important), to create an Outlook account, which I did by creating a username and password, all of which went OK. But when I try to sign in, it's asking me for "email, phone, or Skype," NONE of which I has to enter when I created the account. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize my G Mail account. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

OK, so you went to to create it? Then the email address should be <username>

so for example if you did LJFried as the username, the email should be [email protected]
