Therefore, if you have shared your NotePad or a file from your storage with someone before, it is necessary to send the given person a new link to file or set up sharing of the file again.
If you already use the Office 365 mailbox, the change of UPN will result in the Outlook application asking for new login details after a certain time. Fill in new login data according to instructions (your inbox accessed through the online platform will work normally after logging in with the new details).
