How to move a Minecraft Account to another email (Microsoft Tutorial)

You've just purchased Personal Minecraft Account and would like to change the email address to yours, which is no easy task with no prior knowledge! That's why we will guide you through the process.

The Tutorial

Starting off, your login will be provided in Email:EmailPassword:MinecraftPassword format. This means if you would like to login to Minecraft, you'll need to use the Email and MinecraftPassword. To login to the Email address, you can go to mail.com (or mail.rambler.ru if the email domain is rambler.ru) and use the Email and EmailPassword.

Before starting the process of moving the email, please login to your account on the Minecraft Launcher and make sure that it is not a demo account. If you move the email and it shows a demo after, that means you skipped a step and messed up your account. Please pay attention to the steps as we cannot do anything to fix that.

Login Format

Now to change the email of the account of your Microsoft Minecraft Account you need to start off by logging in at login.live.com using the Email and MinecraftPassword provided to you. If the login has "mt" in it, you know its Microsoft.

If you're asked to provide a code, simply submit the email address and then login to your email via mail.com as explained above.
