Topic: Change e-mail associated with my account?

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 live.com e-mail to it. Is this possible?

Thanks.

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 photosynth.net - then go to https://account.live.com/

@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 @hotmail.com, @msn.com, @live.com, @outlook.com, or @microsoft.com etc. address or whether you signed up with your @yahoo.com, @gmail.com, @me.com or other personal email address.

You wouldn't have a Photosynth.net account if you didn't already have a Microsoft Account to sign up with. 
http://account.live.com/ is the Microsoft Account (previously Windows Live ID) website.

I found a way to change e-mail associated with photosynth account :
1st Step: You have to go on the top bar and click on "Tech Preview" http://photosynth.net/preview
2nd Step: Click on top right "˅" down arrow then
3rd Step: Go to "settings"
that's it. I hope i helped you.

Hi, TheSailorKing,

You may notice that with the Photosynth 2 beta site that you linked to that it only changes the email account that email notifications are sent to.

This does not change the email account that you sign into the website with, though, which is what jlamarca (and others elsewhere) have asked about.
