I was trying hard at that as well ;-) I think what he really wants is get 
mail from his ISP to his local machine and then read it there via Outlook, 
but not get it directly with Outlook. Steven, you cannot use an MTA like 
Postfix for this unless your ISP queues your mail. You use fetchmail (or 
another program which does the same, I don't know if it is included with 
CentOS) to get the mail via POP from the ISP to your local machine, then 
you get it from your local machine with the client via POP or IMAP (use 
dovecot) as already explained.
