An HD2 will absolutely sync with Live Mail. When you set up a hotmail.com address it automatically downloads and installs the mobile sync client that handles contacts and email from your live account.

Outlook Express has been replaced by Live Mail desktop client on Windows 7. It's not included in the OS, but it's a free download with all the other Live tools from Microsoft. It even appears as an option in Windows Update. That also handles a Hotmail account or any other POP/IMAP mailbox.

You can't sync email with your phone that you plugged in because you don't have Outlook. But if it's all in the cloud, you'd never need to do that anyway. What's the point of having a mail enabled always connected device and manually sync to a desktop?

You have to see it in motion. It's amazingly fluid and well designed in use. I personally love what they've done in getting rid of all the unnecessary graphic elements. There are no lines between the messages in your inbox, no always visible scroll bars, no locked title bars... really nothing at all between you and your data. Play with one in a store and you'll come away with a completely different impression.
