Hi

I have a Office365 account which is used as [email protected]. I also have a Skydrive account which is used as [email protected]. Whenever I try to send a link from SkyDrive, I immediately get a message that I need to clear a second auth check, which turns out to be a new browser window, which immediatey tells me that because I am an Office365 user, I have to log out to auth. I log out and immediately get the same message ad nauseum, eventually both windows freeze and I lose my message and attachments as they eventually both log me out.

This is the case at home (where I dont use office365 via browser as I use the OL client) and at work where I dont use office365 via client, only using the browser.

This is a deal breaker for Sky Drive. How do I get around this? Surely this has been experienced by others? I am literally nervous around using any other file sharing platform given the events of the last year in NZ and SkyDrive is linked to a lot of devices for me, so is Office365.

Any help or pointers?

Thanks


Gund

Here's the word from MS.

When all the free users form hotmail.com were migrated to outlook.com all the paying subscribers from office365.com were disconnected from skydrive.

If there's truth in that, it'll be the first time I have been a paying subscriber of a service and have lost significant functionality in order to accomodate the other free-loaders.

Can anybody concur?
