Windows 7: Create your own email server on W7

Create your own email server on W7

Hi all
anybody managed to create their own email server on Windows 7 yet.

What I want to do is use something with the functionality say of MS EXCHANGE so I can send and receive emails directly from Windows 7 without having to use an ISP's mail server.

The problem with using a normal ISP is that you can RECEIVE email normally wherever you are but SENDING is a problem since most ISP's close the SEND PORT when you are not connected to the ISP.

I've seen a few email server type of programs but unless I'm totally stupid I can't make any sense of what one has to do to set this up.

Note I can already receive email and re-distribute it to INTERNAL mail boxes but I want SEND capability asI said without using an ISP's mail server.

I also HATE WEBMAIL type of solutions -- usually slow and bloated with adware). I Like OUTLOOK and want to use it as my main email client.
