You can do it manually if you know the users in question, by going into ADUC, into their properties under Exchange Features, Protocol settings and disabling Outlook Web Access (HTTP).

Other than that, you would have to have a group policy for the password policy on the domain stating that users must have a password on the domain. (minimum password length > 0)

Since you've left this question open still, I'd point out that you should NOT have blank passwords on your network at all.  You should have been prompted numerous times to institute a password policy (after running the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard or the Configure Remote Access Wizard).  Your failure to do so does not just compromise Outlook Web Access, but rather the entire security of your network.

The solution should be to institute a password policy.  You can do so by clicking on the "Configure Password Policies" link in the User section of the Server Management Console.
