I sincerely apologize for my inattention to detail.

Here's the link.

I created a new Outlook.com email address instead of renaming existing. How can I free up the new account?




Hi,



Before realising I could transfer/upgrade/rename my existing Live account to an outlook.com address, I created a new one in error. After realising my mistake, I deleted/closed the newly created outlook.com address then attempted to rename my current Live account to the now closed outlook.com account. Unfortunately I am not able to as I'm told I will need to wait 270 days before the account I created will be available for use.



Clearly I can prove I created the outlook.com account as I have all the security details. Is there any way of freeing up the account immediately?



Additionally, I am not the only person who has made this mistake, several of us jumped in feet-first. Below are a selection of links to people asking the same question. None of us have had a useful reply yet. Please can somebody provide us with a solution (other than mark your diary for 270 days from now)?
I hope this helps.
