  • If you managed to create a long password with 16+ characters, try shortening the passphrase and use 16 characters when logging into Windows. Mail@live will accept 16+ characters when, say, Zune, will not. Both may be using the same WLID.

  • Have you tried the old password of the Windows Live ID that you used previously?
    You might wait for a little while and see if the new Windows Live Password will sync and allow you to logon.
