How to configure Remote Web Workplace to prevent some users from using.

I have a SBS 2003 Premium with SP1 running Exchange 2003 and using POP3 on an external email server.

We have a [key] employee who just resigned from our company and left last Friday.
The boss wants him to access his email to help with the transition but also wants to keep a separate copy of all incoming email.
I searched EE and found what I thought was a good way to do this:
     [created a new Exchange contact and forwarding all email to the employee's old email address to the new contact]
That part seems to work just fine.

My problem is the boss does not want him to have access to the other network resources, especially his old desktop.

How can I provide access to OWA but deny access to other network desktops, but especially his old desktop?

I tried using a Remote Access Policy, several different scenarios of security permissions plus setting the user and computer Dial-in Allow/Deny Access properties but could not get anything to work.  Obviously I do not understand what I am doing.

Thanks for any help!

Just remove the user from the Remote Web Workplace Security Group.  

He can then access OWA via http://server.domain.com/exchange

And then he said, "you have got to be kidding me!"
We are using that [url] for several of our users who only want OWA.
Never dawned on me that we could use it without making them part of the RWW.

Thanks, I will check it out.
