What I don't understand here is why it even matters whether or not the original e-mail account you used as the login ID for your Microsoft Account exists anymore or not. I've known several people who've changed e-mail providers after setting up a Microsoft Account, and there are no problems. I believe that Microsoft will ask you for a new e-mail address when you log in to your Microsoft Account on the Microsoft website if there have been bounces from the one that's your login id, but that's it.
Try logging in to your Microsoft Account on Microsoft.com, changing your password so that you can try logging in from your computer with the old e-mail address and new password, and adding your new e-mail address as a new account alias. You could also choose to use a phone number as a new login alias.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
