Can OWA work if Exchange 2000 on SBS 2000 is only being used for storage and not transport?

I've been asked to get OWA operational on this SBS 2000 server. I've set up OWA dozens of times with SBS 2003 but I'm not sure I've ever done it with 2000, at least not in years.

I'm being told this client is POP-ing their ISP mailbox from the workstations with Outlook but then "saving" their email in their Exchange mailboxes. So it appears they're using Exchange for storage but not using Exchange for transport. I have yet to see one of these workstations to see how this is set up.

So I'm working on getting OWA operation and so far I can't get the web page to show up. I just got Certificate services installed but it's still not happening. But my question is simply this: can OWA work if there is, for example, no POP connector configured in Exchange? This one's got me stumped. Thanks!
