Can't get connected with my second (original) email address and password on a replacement laptop
My older PC uses email address (eg) firstname.lastname@example.org, with its repective password.
My new Laptop with Windows 8.1 was set up with (eg) email@example.com with its particular password. Somehow, it also has my old (original) email address as well--which is what I really need to use when I finally scrap my original laptop and have all subsequent emails directed to the new laptop.
However, when I try and enter my (original) password to this original email address (or any other password) on this new computer, it rejects this as incorrect.
How do I correct this problem--as I still wish to use this original address and password to continue receiving emails (without having to notify all and sundry that they need to use a different address)?
Better still, how can I delete the example2 address (that is registered as my main account name when using either laptop on the Telstra Wireless 4G network ), so that I only have one address and one password to worry about!!!

Could be wrong but the new win O/S doesn't support a POP account so if you've not been upgraded to outlook.com you may need to request an upgrade.
