Strange issue with Hotmail - anyone else having the same experience?

Just wanted to share a really odd experience. My primary email account is hotmail. Just because I've had it so long I didn't want to change it. When I got my Bold, the AT&T guys could not set up my hotmail under the BIS push function. They said that it was because hotmail apparently forces you to buy the premium service from them ($20 a year) to enable pushing and that's why gmail is easier as that's free. I was quite disappointed, but opened a gmail account and that was set up fine to push emails to my Bold. Well, I was on my Bold last night (too much time on my hands waiting for a delayed train back to NYC!) and guess what? I could set up my hotmail account and it pushes the email just fine! Is this a change that Microsoft has just made or was it always available? Or is it going to blow up down the road? Just curious....
i have an older hotmail account and everything works fine except once a week it asks for my account to be validated (using 8350i) never had this problem with my 7100i . any suggestions before i set my gmail account up to foward and push my hotmail account?
