Most likely not. Some old accounts were grandfathered by Microsoft and will work. Otherwise you have to pay to go tot he upgraded hotmail.

Default Yes and no

If you have an older account, you can set it up as a BIS account.
If you have a newer account, you're outta luck.

You CAN however setup a newer account to send a text message alert when you get a new email. It's not perfect, but it will let you know when you get an email.

Hope that helps.
