Recover Deleted Email Alias
My daughter accidentally deleted my email alias which was a *******@hotmail.com (an email address I've had since before the world wide web). Now I'm told that I can't recover that alias even though it's the main email address for the account because it's a reserved domain. I should be able to recover that email alias since it's already tied to the account. Everything I have is tied to that email alias.

Case #1006060377. I have a recommendation to prevent this issue from happening again, as once I lost my alias, I couldn't recover it. See the alias was a separate account that I merged and thought that when I delete it from my main account, that the accounts would just separate. That didn't happen - it got permanently deleted.
My recommendation: when removing an alias, the emails become separate accounts instead of the email address being deleted forever.
Não consigo loga Pelo alias principal deletado, preciso loga na minha acc principal deletada e não sei como, pelos comentários falam que precisa espera 30 dias pra adicionar outro alias muita gente está interpretando esse alias de forma errada e eles deveriam ter uma maneira de fácil acesso para recuperar esse alias porque não é somente as mensagens que você deixa de recebe você perde acesso até pra todos apps usados por aquele alias e muitas pessoas com filhos que acabam acidentalmente deletando o alias estão perdendo todas as suas informações, se alguém poder me ajuda agradeço estou tentando de todas as formas mais não estou conseguindo.

I am the same, I deleted the alias by mistake and now have no access at all. I dont really care about the email address but I want to emails... Microsoft need to come up with a better way around this.... If I could just get access to copy all the emails out of it id be happy to lose email address
Same situation with live.com email. Alias was deleted and Microsoft Chat Support are saying I can't have it back. I can't receive emails anymore in that Microsoft account, so what's the point of the account? And I will lose all my external accounts linked to it. It doesn't make any sense!
We had the same issue - ours started with xbox where we wanted to remove our email address from the kids xbox account (since the kids are grown). When we went through the process with Microsoft we ended up losing 2 email accounts. Now trying to see about getting one recovered. This should not be this hard to do this since some xbox accounts were setup so long ago (before kids had email) that they should allow for this or at least have persons on support that have the knowledge to do this. - Frustrated
I have deleted my email alias and can not get it back.
