With MS stop supporting the linking of MS Accounts do they have an option to merge Accounts?

I've been looking online but so far no luck.

 

I have a outlook.com address and an old msn.com address

The new account only has the 7gb of skydrive space where the old one has the 25gb

 

Do you guys know of a way to merge these to accounts so that in the end the old msn.com account is now an alias and I have the 25gb of storage on my main account?

 

Is this possible at all?

 

Cheers

it may be possible but it would be something you would want to contact outlook/live support about directly. as if it is possible they would be able to help you acomplish it from the back end

MS has no help for this other then what you can find online.

That's what they told me when you chat to the online help.

Basically go to and ask: http://windows.micro...ductKey=wolmain

 

There was a short URL, but I forgot it.

 

So what happens is that you delete the account that you want to add as an alias. So you want to delete your outlook.com and add it to your msn.com address it takes 30 days to "recycle" an address.
