E-mail address incorrect when configuring Windows 8 profile

Hello there-

I went wrong my e-mail when setting up of widows 8 for the first time on a new laptop. How can I change the already entered email address so that the system can validate by sending me an email & finish setting up my account?
I did the online check-in with the correct address. I have however to get an error message from the center of the Action on the taskbar asing me to complete the registration...
Grateful for some advice on this.
Thank you & best regards

Hi Nick,


Thank you for choosing Windows 8 and for giving us the opportunity to help you.

You mentioned that you have already entered the online registration email right and complete address. In this case, I suggest you to pass your Microsoft account for the Local account and then switch back to the Microsoft account to see if you get the same error. See the following steps to do the same thing:

(a) press the Windows key + C, select change PC settings
(b) click users in the left panel
(c) click the switch of Local account under the account of the user option and follow the instructions
(d) restart the computer and follow the same steps to return to the Microsoft account.
 
I hope this helps. If the issue is not resolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help you.

  • I made a form for my clients, I did this form with a button "submit" button, the button will save the form and send it, I did the URL to go to a different (different to mine) e-mail address but when I distribute the form and it is complete

    I made a form for my clients, I did this form with a button "submit" button, the button Save the form and send it, I did the URL to go to a different (different to mine) e-mail address but when I distribute the form and it is supplemented by my clients it send to my email address not the URL how to change this.

    No matter how you have configured the Send button when you use the feature distribute the form. There are some e-mail address is in your identity preferences (Edit > preferences > identity) and use it. If you can change the email address it or not to use distribute the form and the button send the value you want.

    One thing that happens when you use the feature to distribute the form is the form is enabled Reader, you can do separately, but you really shouldn't do if the form must be used by others. The dispenser a form must activate using their copy under license of Acrobat Reader.

  • Someone else set up my e-mail address, and when I open it I click on send and receive to display my new email.

    Someone else set up my e-mail address, and when I open it I click on send and receive to display my new email. When I had any version before he would automatically show my most recent emails, how can I change this setting so I did not click on send and receive whenever I want to see my mail?

    original title: see E-mail

    How does anyone know when you don't specify what program you use for email?

    Some e-mail programs have a setting options for send and receive at startup.  You might look for it, or ask the person who set up your email for you.

  • Windows Mail address lines when seding mail

    I get a lot of email are made with other programs and display only the recipients name. During the preparation of outgoing mail I double click the contact in the contact list and the recipient so that the recipients E-Mail address is displayed

    Example of John Smith<*** email="" address="" is="" removed="" for="" privacy="" ***="">

    Is it possible to only see the recipients without the address name (I think it was standard with Outlook Express, I've used before)

    In Windows mail, the name and address will display in the field. It's the way it was designed...

    If you are interested, you can install Windows Live Mail (WLM).
    WLM is supposed to replace Windows Mail which Microsoft has stopped supporting more than a year before.
    WLM is free software, and it will coexist with Windows Mail.
    WLM will automatically copy all data (messages, contacts, etc.) of Windows Mail so that it is being installed. You don't have to do anything.
    There are many more features in WLM in WM.

  • What happens to the records staff and old e-mail address book when I change to new email

    I got a new email address. I'm going to quit using the former, who was with Comcast when I cancel the Comcast service, how can I make sure that I don't lose my personal folders and the address book. Also, if I can keep the personal folders that contain e-mail messages with the old e-mail address of Comcast, I'll be able to read them?

    Thank you.

    The address book is not affected.
    Comcast is my recollection of a pop email provider. If your via IMAP it's useless to you, so to speak.
    If you right-click on the Comcast account in the folders pane and select settings. Under Server setting for the change of account, do not check for mail setting. Click Advanced settings and change the tick this off server as well. It stop at Thunderbird makes you mad with impossible to sign messages on behalf of the deceased.
    Go to outgoing (SMTP) server and remove the Server SMTP of Comcast. This will avoid you accidentally answering the old post office and get an error as the Comcast account is no longer.

  • Multiple E-mail addresses for printing configurations

    Hello

    I wanted to install a second e-mail address to allow printing b & w such as color printing. Is it possible to get a second for a second configuration?

    example: I want to be able to print color or b/w via ePrint. Therefore, a flush draw, I send the mail to [email protected] and for printing black and white, I use the [email protected] address.

    Such a thing is possible? Or: Is there a way to affect the configuration of remote printing?

    With greetings

    Alternatively, you can switch to a local account, which means it tries to log the wrong account for Live ID, and then when you switch to a Microsoft Account usage is more dialogue request your Live ID and the password so that you can enter the right pair.

    It is more likely the cause, you will need to first installation web services in order to use Google Cloyd Print and associate your printer with the cloud.

    Google Chromebook allow printing using Google Cloud Print, so that you need to save your printer with HP ePrint service and then connect them to the Google service.

    Follow these steps to configure the service:

    1. Click on the ePrint button and select delete Web Services. If all confirmationn had to confirm it.
    2. For the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain or France follow these steps to re-enable web services and save your printer from the HP site connected:
      http://support.HP.com/us-en/document/c02728147
      For ANY country OTHER than the United States, UK, Germany, Spain or France follow these steps instead:

    3. You will receive with the ability to customize the address of your printer on the HP ePrint Center or HP sites connected.
