    I just switched from Windows phone to Android, I got the galaxy S8+. My main Microsoft Account, which has all my calendars and contact information, uses my gmail address as the account user name. This is also the gmail address that I am using to log into my phone's main account for backup etc.

    When I try to enter this information in under the "add account" section in settings, or through the Outlook for Android app, it keeps thinking I am trying to add a gmail account rather than my Microsoft account. Any thoughts as to a solution?

    Can you change the MS login - maybe add a 'w' to the end?

    Ah - didn't realise it was so simple to change your microsoft alias address! Thank you. All sorted now.
