    I have hotmail account X that is my "microsoft account" on my mobile phone

    I am trying to use outlook account Y to open files from skydrive but it tells me i do not have permission


    Can I only use the microsoft account that is attributed to my phone for skydrive?

    any help is appreciated

    It's best using the same Microsoft account, but you should be able to "see" sky drive folders/files from another account if you have shared those folders/files with "account Y." I have both accounts (actually @outlook/@live/@Hotmail/@gmail/etc.), but they all go to my Hotmail account and I sign into everything with my Hotmail account. That way it is very simple. If you want emails from another account to be separate, just make a rule so those emails go to a different Inbox folder.

    Does that help?
