you can add MSN (hotmail) to outlook express, and i would expect you should be able to set it as the default email, however i believe you will need to log on to msn to actually send an e-mail (not sure). i use ntl as my default and also have OE check my Hotmail account at the same time.
worth a try i suppose, you may just need to set the default in OE/tools/accounts, click MSN(hotmail) and click "set as default"
try it and see.
