VPN user using both POP and Exchange

I need to do this.  A remote user cannot always get a VPN connection and has 2 accounts in his Outlook 2003 profile.  One POP and the other Exchange.  The Exchange one is not one that anyone really sends to, so his POP is set to primary.  When travelling, he cannot always get the VPN to work and would like to send emails via his POP and only synch up with his Exchange server when he gets home and can VPN.  Is it possible to send email from Outlook 2003 and NOT use his VPN to send it?  It keeps prompting him to log onto the VPN before it will send emails so he has to wait until he can get a good VPN connection back at home.  Essentially, he just wants the Exchange features for Synching his mail with the server once in a while and work primarily with his POP account.  He may even want to add more POP accounts in the future.  Any ideas?

    When the user wants to send out an email, there will be an ACCOUNTS button on the standard toolbar. You should select the pop account from here and send.
