I think you could get by with ports:  80 for web, 25 for smtp, 110 for POP3, 389 for RDP, and 4125 I think for RWW.

Here's some info from the same question on a SBS newsgroup:

>> RWW 443 and 444 if you want companyweb.
>> SMTP 25
>> POP3 110
>> RDP 3389
>> and OWA is best via 443, can operate via 80 but we prefer not to.

Those should be the only ports you need, for access as described above.
However, I would also enable DNS on UDP port 53 as otherwise you will need to use IP addresses instead of names to get everything working.
