What is a Premium Email Account?
Noticed that as I set up my ntlworld email account on my Galaxy S2 I could only manage to create it successfully IF I chose 'Premium account'. Am wondering if anyone can explain what premium means in this case? Could it be similar to default account?

It appears to be the feature whereby you register your email accounts with Samsung, their servers check your emails for you, and push notifications out to you to tell you when you have new email. It will save battery because you don't have to have your phone polling your email accounts every 5 minutes.
I've got the opposite problem - am unable to set my live hotmail account as my premium account as its set for windows messenger. I get stuck on a retrieving account information prompt which then times out, and can't remove the premium setting from the other account, or even the actual account itself. Any ideas?
