I went into outlook to make sure my email account V*AW@hotmail.com was up as primary alias because I was getting no mail. A few weeks ago I added another alias B*@gmail.com. and accidentally put it as primary. I need to switch them around and I have tried just that, but when I enter my original account V*A**W@hotmail.com, it won't let me reuse the old hotmail account -said my account couldn't be used, denied already used. Hell, it was there 20 seconds ago when I used it so I know no one has it. How can I switch these accounts like they need to be??? and how can I do it like asap? I have a business and I need my Hotmail to be primary and gmail to just be backup. And what is this about 30 days? HELP, Vicki

Is this about Outlook (the desktop email client) or outlook.com? –  Vidar S. Ramdal Feb 19 at 9:28
