Under the subject \"Microsoft, please add push functionality to Hotmail for Microsoft mobile devices!\" Robert Webbe (you know - the guy who knows everything about Bluetooth A2DP and AVRC) sent me an interesting E-Mail yesterday and the topic he raised is absolutely worth to discuss.
Why is msn not offering MSFP functionalities for its MSN Hotmail Plus service which costs yearly 19,99 Euro already!
I mean, for sure you get for your 20 Euro 2 GB storage space, you can send and receive E-Mails with up to 20 MB attachments and you are not bothered by any ad-banners but - and this might make the Hotmail Plus so worth for some - you can also access your Hotmail account via Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express.

I'm dieing for this...proper push email from my good old hotmail address.  Could this possibly be included in the new Windows Live Mobile for PPC?

I got this idea while I was playing with the BlackBerry client of the new Sony Ericsson M600i. More and more (non-business) consumers are asking for pushmail on a 'normal' phone. The BlackBerry RIM is not a option here in The Netherlands because it is too expensive (20 euro a month, excl VAT) and mostely it is POP3 pull and then pushed to the mobile.

Many people do have a hotmail account and I think this is THE ultimate oppertunity for Microsoft to have a unique selling point for the Microsoft Mobile devices!

Pushmail is emailing in way it is ment to be. I use a Qtek 8500 on the moment and it is connected to our corporate Exchange server and this is working like magic. Sometimes my mobile devices notificates me earlier than my laptop which is connected by wire on the LAN.

I really hope Microsoft will understand this. Else I hope that Bill Gates will read this in 2010 and say "Mmmm, he was right..."

Didn't "Pocket MSN for Windows Mobile" did this for Hotmail a couple years ago? http://www.pocketnow.com/index.php?a=po … mp;id=2392

You could turn on instant email which would activate a Hotmail send/recieve through an SMS message as configured from mobile.msn.com. The newer version included in later ROMs doesn't have that feature. It's not the kind of Exchange 2003 SP2 push email that we have now, but it was still push email.
