A while back Microsoft announced that they were going to un-link the linked accounts we had on our emails.

 

Since I had no idea what the password was on my linked account I decided to get a new password for my linked account - and to unlink the account as well.

 

But so far I haven't been able to find out how to do it?

 

Is there a setting that I'm missing or was Microsoft going to do it itself in the future sometime, without a set date in mind?

http://profile.microsoft.com err, this is different.

 

https://account.live.com/  <-- Yeah, that's right... Permissions > Linked Accounts

 

and, yes, they'll unlink them for you when they roll-out the "update."

Go to your account settings (not mail settings, click on your user name in the top left/right corner and select account settings).  The Permissions section contains your Linked Accounts.  I am assuming there is a button or link or something in there to help you out - I am not 100% sure if this will help since I don't have a linked account.

Thank you both for you replies.

 

However, I do have one follow up question ...if anyone is still reading the thread :)

 

I used my linked account for spam mail ...signing up on forums etc that could and would probably sell my email address.

 

If I used an alias in my default email ...would that alias email get my spam mail, or would the spam mail be displayed as spam in my main email?

 

(yeah, I really dislike spam - is there any other free email service that provides linked accounts?)
