Have you tried Window Live Mail and not liked it? If not, Microsoft hasn't been supporting OE for a couple years now (except for security updates) and Live Mail supports all the free hotmail accounts you want. I had three false starts before moving over completely and now it a pretty good client, and more importantly, continues to get updated.

Hotmail is supposed to offer free POP3.
Not sure of the worldwide schedule but the US is slated for February.

Then it can be used with Outlook Express, Windows Mail and other
email clients.

Hotmail supports http protocol to receive and send mails on Outlook Express AFAIK. When you set an account you'll be probably shown option to add Hotmail account too. But be warned, it'll be darn slow.
If you are using Microsoft Outlook then you can download Outlook Connector to receive mails as well as syncing of your calendars etc.
