Outlook WEB Access

I have a postoffice MSMail with 70 users.
Also, I'm in the process of migrating everyone to Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 srvpack 1 but only 20 users are on it at the moment. What's happenning is that my 20 users have access to both the Msmail postoffice and to the Exchange Server. In my 20 users, I have 3 that need to be remote, so I have setup the outlook Web Access and it works just fine for sending and receiving messages with accounts that are setup on the exchange server. My question is, How do my 3 remote users send and/or receive E-Mail to/from the Ms-Mail postoffice ?
I think there is a feature in Exchange server that could do the trick, but I'm not sure what ? maybe MTA ?
I presently use a MSMail connector protocol on exchange server.

I guess the best thing would be that Exchange server would catch any messages (coming from Msmail) adressed to one of its predefined user so that those messages would be available to any exchange user connecting remotely through Outlook web access.
You have to set up Directory Replication!
File/new other/directory Replication connector.
Then you get all your MSMail Mailbox entrys replicated to exchange and your remote users can see their MS-Mail Postoffice

Maybe that's true, but the exchange server won't let me create a directory replication if I don't have a site connector. I try to do a site connect, but as you would imagine, my exchange server does not see my MS Mail server. What's the proper way to do this. I want to make the MsMail messages visible to the Exchange server users for remote users that connect through Outlook Web Access.
There is Directory Synchronisation (not Replication) between MSX and MSMail. But this wouldn't allow OWA access the mails sent to the MSMail mailbox. There is a 3rd party tool (MailRed), that allows to forward mails automatically (in this case to the MSX mailbox). Check http://www.dataenter.co.at
