Postfix is a popular mail server which should be available in nearly all repos. For administration you may want to use the config files or you can install webmin ( for a user-friendly interface for configuration.

As for outlook compatibility, you can configure outlook to use the postfix server, a simple instruction for the outlook configuration can be found at

Mail servers are not really known for being easy to configure and not for beginners. If you decide to set one up I suggest Postfix (it is easier to configure than sendmail) and also reading a lot of man pages. Try to practice what you read, not just read it.
