After I setup my Hotmail account on the PB and it authenticated as the exact same account settings on my PCs I had to wait maybe 15-20 seconds before it started synching and when the notification message disappeared all was good to go for Contacts and Calendar. During Account setup I had made sure that those two items were authorized.
I have both a POP mail account and the Hotmail account and both work well.
Good luck, I know this may not be the exact answer you were seeking but at least you know it can be done.
