you need to edit the file /etc/mail/sendmail.cf

there you need to search the line :
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA

you need to replace 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0

and if this is not working ( rare )

you need to change the line to be like this
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp, Name=MTA

(remove "Addr=127.0.0.1,")

yes pop and smtp can using outlook or other mail clients via lan, as victorbx, you have to config the sendmail.cf there is one more entry you need to take care is

#####  $Id: accept_unresolvable_domains.m4,v 8.10 1999/02/07 07:26:07 gshapiro E
xp $  #####
Cwyourdomain.com

also, in the /etc/hosts.allow add the below line

ipop3d:127.0.0.1,192.168.0.     (assume your internal ip is 192.168.0. subnet)
sendmail:all

if you using sendmail.

you can also thinking of using qmail, have a check here http://www.lifewithqmail.org/lwq.html#start-qmail or here http://www.flounder.net/qmail/qmail-howto.html#8
