Want free Push-email? Have Live Mail

Windows Live Mail allows you to use Push E-mail with your Hotmail or Live e-mail accounts. You can also benefit of the fetch e-mail technology that allows you to get only the desired e-mail or attachments without having to call a full send/receive.

Fetch e-mail does come enabled by default, however to use Push-email you must:

Start – Windows Live, Menu – Options – Sync Schedule. The select “As items arrive”;
