I had linked a free domain name to create a Hotmail account which has now expired. I no longer have access to that domain, and I don't have access to that account on the registrar.

I'm not getting any emails sent to that email ID, although I can login to that account and use it as a Microsoft account in all Microsoft services.

And now I can't change that account ID also.

Any solution other than deleting that account?
