Microsoft no longer blocking GMail accounts from Live ID

Last week I was alerted by a friend about Microsoft not allowing @gmail.com accounts when registering for a Live ID using an existing e-mail address.

I contacted Microsoft during the weekend and was informed that this was not their intention and it was the result of some wrong configuration.

I have just been informed - and confirmed - that @gmail.com are no longer blocked and can be used as a Live ID when registered through their site through the option to use an existing e-mail address.

All in all a very good and quick response from the Microsoft Windows Live team.
