How to verify an email address in your Microsoft account

When you sign up for a Microsoft account or add an email address to your account, we automatically send a request to that email for you to verify that we have the right address. To finish the process, just follow the verification link in the email. If you need a new verification email:

  1. Sign in to Manage how you sign in to Microsoft.

  2. Verify button will be next to any unverified aliases.

  3. Click Verify next to your email address, and then click Send email.
