    HOW IT ALL STARTED

    I signed up at the Microsoft Stream Preview website, using an Personal Microsoft Account ID, not realizing that it was a service meant for Office 365 for Business.

    Usually Microsoft websites check if the account is a business account or not before accepting he email id. Microsoft Stream, however accepted my Personal Microsoft Account ID and signed me up, classifying the ID as a Business Microsoft ID and granting me access to portal.office.com with a Microsoft Steam subscription and nothing else.

    THE PROBLEM THAT THAT CREATED

    I have a grandfathered (from when it was free) custom live domain using which we have several e-mail ids.

    Consequently, we were unable to access our mails at outlook.com which came up with a something-went-wrong error message when we tried to sign in.

    A little research on Bing (yes, I am a loyal Microsoft insider) and I found that the solution was to switch my primary e-mail id with an alias, which I did on Windows 10 but not on Windows 10 Mobile (Lumia 950), which still gives the something-went-wrong error message.

    THE SOLUTION AS I SEE IT

    Besides, switching the primary e-mail ID with an alias, I was hoping you could help with a permanent solution.

    Specifically how do I delete these accounts from Microsoft Stream, and cancel the corresponding subscriptions in the portal.office.com? How do I close these Business 365 accounts from portal.office.com.

    Hmm, that's weird, how did it even sign your personal MSA up? You may have to email MS support. I can't get passed the signup page w/o putting in my O365 account.

    Exactly. Probably because Microsoft Stream is in Preview, and it was just not my day.

    We spoke to Microsoft when we had some issues with old domain MSA accounts. Raise a support ticket via outlook.com. Took a couple of weeks for our issue to be resolved but they did it.
