I've been looking all over and can't seem to find out I can change the e-mail associated with my Photosynth account. Currently, an OLD hotmail account that I don't use much is attached to it and I want to a newer e-mail to it. Is this possible?

I just did this. You need to login to your windows live account and you can change your email address there.

Can you do this? I'm not so sure you can. You can add a personal email address to your profile, but change the actual email address that is linked to the account?

I think you're stuck with your old account - but what's wrong with the hotmail address?

You can do this without having an actual Windows Live account. Log in to - then go to

@adamwozniak, when xRez Studio says "login to your Windows Live account", he means exactly what you just said.

What is now (since 2012) called 'Microsoft Account' was previously called: 
Microsoft Wallet, 
Microsoft Passport, 
.NET Passport, 
Microsoft Passport Network, 
and (at the time that xRez Studio commented) Windows Live ID.
The name isn't the important thing. It's all Microsoft's single sign on service.

You have always been able to sign up for a Microsoft Account with a non-Microsoft email address, but it is the same thing, whether you have an,,,, or etc. address or whether you signed up with your,, or other personal email address.

You wouldn't have a account if you didn't already have a Microsoft Account to sign up with. is the Microsoft Account (previously Windows Live ID) website.
