    Ok well, I asked about this on both the MS forums and another thread on wpcentral, but didn't anything. Problem is, I wanted to connect to my outlook account on my 928, but I don't know the password. I created it last fall as an alias for my MS account but never used it. I don't even think I created a password, since I can't find one of those email confirmation receipts. I can log in fine to my MS account when entering my outlook email with my MS account password, but I can't figure out how to actually find/set up my outlook email account password. The page that directs to resetting the password on the outlook website is for the MS account, and not the outlook email account. Can anyone help me with this, or point me to someone who can?

    As far as i understand you created an alias for you MS account right?
    The alias feature which allows you to create multiple email IDs?
    There is no separate password for those aliases, you have to use your main account password only.

    Yeah, that's what I did.

    Do you know if I can create the outlook.com email account separately with a password, then link it to my MS account later? I tried connecting to my outlook email on my phone with my MS password, but it doesn't work. I think it's really silly that there is no other way to access the outlook alias besides going to the outlook webpage.

    You can't give it a separate password. But you can give it it's own tile in WP8. I have an alias with it's own tile. Unfortunately it won't send as the alias from the phone. Hopefully they will fix that soon.
