Windows Live beta agreement - cost of shipping?

I'm checking out the Windows Live email beta, and their license agreement is of course scary, but this really was intriguing:

3. COST OF TESTING. There is no charge to Recipient for testing of the Product. Microsoft shall bear all direct freight expenses relating to the shipment of the Product to Recipient’s place of business and Recipient will pay any return freight expenses.

They unfortunately don't specify how I can initiate the shipping of Hotmail to my place of business - and I'm not sure Amazon would appreciate it even if they did.
