If they are connecting via POP3/SMTP then they will need to authenticate to send email.
The format for Exchange 5.5 SMTP authentication is (if I remember correctly) domain\username\alias

Correct. Configure Outgoing authentication, but the authentication username needs to be in the format that I have outlined above. I don't think domain\username works on Exchange 5.5 (but it has been a while so I might be wrong).
