Basic outlook bandwidth requirements required

Hello

We have recently taken over a small company and I have been given the task of finding out if we can get them to connect to our exchange server.  They have a 1MB line but run online applications which consume around 400/500k of that bandwidth.  Im looking to connect 2-4 people to our mail server, is outlook mail traffic likely to overload the connection?  What are my best options?

Native Outlook?
Cashed Mode?
OWA?

One option which has been suggested is to run a terminal server at our office and ask them to connect to that as that uses very low bandwidth but access to the full client on their PC would be preferable.


Thanks Chaps  :)

Cached mode is always preferable. I don't run Outlook live unless on a LAN. Get below 100mb and it is cached mode.
2-4 users on a 1mb line that is already half used should be ok. It really depends on what sort of email they are getting. If it is just text stuff, then it will be ok. If there are lots of 10mb attachments going both ways, then maybe not.
