I've been using Freepops for months, including Hotmail, it was a easy to set up, so tell us what was difficult to set up, maybe we can un-difficult it for you.

The only thing you've got to do is to go in the account set up is to make sure the port is set to port 2000 and the host is set to localhost, and away you go.

are you able to send e-mails with that software

You use your normal default smtp account to send email like you do with all your accounts, just make sure you select the correct identity in the drop-down menu in the send panel at the top.
