i have outlook exchange and i have lost my password. i have two step security, but no access to the registered phone no on the account.
how do i reset my password?
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
The easiest method is to call the phone number (your old one) and explain to the person what has happened and if they can tell you the code. I suggest this as in my experience it is the quickest solution for you.
Are you able to do this?
Please let me know.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No, that isnt an option. The phone number is ***** in use
ok, did you specify a recovery phone number or security questions when setting up the account?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did not set up the account, so im not sure. The person who set it up is no longer with the company
ok, please click on my link below, its going to take you through the recovery process. It is a questionaire so you need to try to fill in the information as accuratly as possible.
Tell me what the results are when you complete the form
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Else Let me know the results please

every time i fill out the form it finds a problem with one of the email addresses i supply (even though there is no problem) then when i retype it, it wont submit the form.
which is annoying...
Whats the exact message it gives?
If you provide me the email address I can check this myself?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
it doesnt give a message, it wont submit. i see that several of the boxes are a different colour (as if they contain the incorrect information). Maybe this is preventing the form from submitting?
The boxes will need to be entered in correctly, else it wont proceed but I cannot see exactly what is entered or what its saying to see what the actual issue is.
I can ask an additional service connect to your computer and we can do this together?

hi richard
what do i do next?
I sent the messages to you, but it appeared you dissapeared?
No problem, Ill repeat what I told you there.
The form is submitted, so you now need to wait up to 24 hours for Microsoft to review the request and respond with their results. Either they believe you are not the owner, ask for more information or give the link to reset the password.
This goes to the Gmail account you sent in the request we did together.
Let me know how it goes please.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK thanks, ***** ***** you posted
Thank you

ok, do you have a facebook account as there is one option left.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i do have a facebook account. Hardly ever use it, but it exists & i can log into it
ok, sign in and go here
Send a message to them there. Can take some time for them to reply but when they do, explain the situation to them to see if they will manually intervene.
If this fails you will need to create a new account, but see how this goes as it has been successful in the past.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK will let you know how I get on.
thank you
