Setting up an external Notes Server

Okay, all of our servers are currently behind a firewall.  I'm wanting certain users to be able to get their mail from outside the firewall.  This can be web-based (I'm running 5.0.8) or normal client...I don't think that really matters.
What would be the best way to get these people their mail?  Would I setup a server with 2 NIC's and have their databases only on that server?  Or should I setup that external server as a passthru server that passes the requests through to the main server?

I'm hoping someone else has done this and can suggest the best and possibly most secure way of doing this.  I say secure because setting up the external server as a passthru would probably give outside people access to EVERYONE's email instead of just the few people who need it.

I'll up the points if need be.

My approach (without knowing what your firewall is like) would be to keep your server inside the firewall and allow connections to that single IP address on port 80 (http) only
Here's a link that I found, may be that it helps you

Well, I feel really stupid now...I never tried just letting port 80 come through to the notes server!  I kept trying to setup an external server and have it come through to the internal server to replicate on port 1352!

The other way is MUCH more secure, but opening port 80 works so I'm going with that.  Just keep in mind that opening port 80 means that ANYONE can just come in and browse your domino server...so you need to make sure all databases are secure and login/pw's are good.

This way works, but I was hoping for something more secure.
