    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…

    The good thing is that I can upvote four times as I have two different e-mail addresses (one job and one personal) that both unintentionally have diverged into personal and work/school identities. 2 x 2 = 4! This is a total mess. I spend so much time to find Azure, Microsoft365/Office resources, making OneDrive work on Windows and MacOS with an endless number of bugs and problems because of this. My work e-mail is only 3 years old (quite new company), and even then they managed to diverge into double set of identities. Half of my customers send Microsoft Teams invites and they end up in personal account and other half of my customers send Microsoft Teams invites and they end up in work/school account, and I have to remember who is who. This is a mess and have to be fixed. The only real fix is to be able to merge two different accounts/identity that use same e-mail address into one account/identity using only one identity provider.
