If you are asking for a command line way of sending email, check the man page on mail and/or mailx. Something like the following should work:
$ mail -s "test" someuser@mydomain.com

You will then get a newline (blank) where you can type the message. Put a period on the line by itself to end inputing the email body.

What about Sendmail config file?

Are you looking for it or want to know how to change something?

If so, try /etc/sendmail.cf or /etc/mail/sendmail.cf
To check the version you are using:
/usr/lib/sendmail -d0.1 -bt < /dev/null
(check the man page for the directory your sendmail executable is in or use the find command or which)

Check out www.sendmail.org for FAQs on sendmail.

Also keep in mind that POP3 and SMTP are two totally different things. Sendmail handles the one (SMTP), but you need a POP3 client to access POP email on a foriegn server, or you need a POP3 daemon to host local POP3 email.
As for Hotmail/MSN, what is the issue you are having specifically?
