I have had MobileMe for about 6 months now and I really love how well it works for iphone. Much better push email than Yahoo! or google (in my experience at least).

However the web experience through a browser is just garbage. Its only really good to use the "Find my iPhone" features.

I am trying to set up MobileMe mail and contacts to sync to Windows live mail in Windows 7.

What is the best way to do this and is there any way to have it push to both my Windows 7 desktop and my iPhone? Maybe with some kind of push popup or notification when I get an email.

I use my MobileMe mail exclusively for communication with friends so I like to read and respond to those emails as quickly as they come in.

any tips or suggestions would be awesomesauce

Look at MobileMe preferences in control panel. It works best if you have outlook. The only calendar option is with outlook. Several options for contacts. Any imap mail client will work. I have used outlook for some time and works great.

Well it's now mid-June and you still can't get MM to sync contacts with Windows 7 Live Mail.
VERY DISAPPOINTING!
I wish they would hurry and fix this.:mad:
