Why do you want to have users use POP3 and not OWA?  Because that would potentially remove messages from your server creating a backup problem.

Also, sent messages wouldn't be stored in user mailboxes, nor would they have access to their calendars or other Mailbox features such as public folders or shared contact lists.

But if you are restricting users to only be able to send email inhouse, that means that you've removed their PUBLIC SMTP email address (the .com one --- or similar and left only their .local one).  The .local email address cannot be used with POP3 under any circumstances because it's a non-resolvable domain.

Plus, just because users have dial-up is no reason to not use OWA.  OWA has two versions, Premium and Basic.  If they are on dial-up have them use the Basic version which uses less bandwidth.  The selection is on the login screen.
