Question Hotmail Plus $19.95/yr. Support instant PUSH EMAIL?

Please Login to Remove!

With Hotmail Plus will I get instant email or is it going to be every 15 minutes.

Hotmail Basic free does not even support Outlook Lame!!! But if I pay $20 a month and it will support Outlook and Push BB Mail. Then I think its worth it.

Anyone else have Hotmail Plus or have experience with it?

It will be every 15 min or so, the only instant are Yahoo and Google, they are better and free...

A very good choice. It integrates beautifully with BIS.

Same here. And there is no guarantee that the Hotmail account will work when you upgrade... I did it and was not able to make it work...

i think overall gmail is a much better interface then yahoo mail AND the push mail works just fine. All the kinks per se seem to have been worked out a while ago.

give them both a try, they are free...

Depends how GMail is configured and integrated with BIS.
GMail with IMAP is a delayed push, on the normal BIS polling cycle. (but offers wireless read/unread mark reconciliation along with deletes.)
GMail with POP3 is nearly instant push. (but only offers wireless delete reconciliation.)

Quick question for you - How have you forwarded your hotmail to another email provider? I thought Hotmail accounts could only be forwarded to other Hotmail accounts.

Older Accounts have an option to forward to another email account sometime before 2000 a.d
