    Sure wish microsoft would fix email. I don't see the purpose, but it won't let you access your email until it texts a verification code to a mobile phone. My phone was out of order for a month, but thanks to zte/att I just got it back with the touchpad replaced even tho I didn't ask them to do so, but microsoft"s never sends the code to the mobile phone. Have not accessed that email for a month. Had this problem three months before with when I couldn't understand what it wanted to send the access code. I think it had the wrong number on file that time, but I don't see microsoft's logic here. Just ask for the number like gmail does. I have one of my android apps on these servers, not that I have sold a one of that one, but production could be down by this flakeyness.
