I'm pretty sure hotmail/live/premium whatever you want to call it, will not push to the handset. Even if you try to forward it to another email it must be a msn product which i've never been able to get to work either. I was so fed up with hotmail that I switched to gmail and it work perfectly.

I'm not sure if you upgraded your Hotmail or not to the premium, but I have a Hotmail account and it works.

I've had mine for a few years so I didn't have to upgrade, but it works fine.

Login to your service's BIS page, I'm not sure what the URL is for Rogers and make sure all your settings are correct.

I also have an "old" hotmail account (circa '99) that works just fine.

I can't say personally, but the premium accounts are said to work as well.

I had the Hotmail Plus service because I was told it was required to be able to be pushed to my Blackberry. However I just got an email the other day saying they were reworking how they did hotmail email and that it wouldn't push to phones anymore. You could only get it through some proprietary software that microsoft was offering. I canceled my Plus status after that.
