First go to login page and choose Forgot Password by pretending that you no longer remember it. Now you will see a box where you shall type the email address that is suspected to valid or not. If the email address entered is not exist, the service will tell you the user name does not exist. This method provides good result with Gmail, Yahoo, Google Apps and Outlook.

Or alternatively go to Gmail Account sign up page and try to create one with the same email address.If the email address exist, mostly you get the message Someone already has that Username.

Go to, and select I forgot my password option and enter outlook email address. For valid address you'll get the message account details are sent to given email address, and if it's not valid get the error The Microsoft account is incorrect.
