Need to implement QOS in our Windows 2003 server network, via NIC, not via router/firewall

Because some of our remote VPN users are getting a raw deal when it come to bandwidth, I need to limit the flow of e-mail somehow on a particular server, which uses the same line the VPN users are using.  How do I implement QoS?  Points awarded for specificity.  Thank you.

    A few questions.  Would it be better to use a QOS aware router since the problem is over a WAN (vpn) connection rather than a registry/program based solution, since not all programs are QOS aware?  Second, if i understand the links correctly, QOS is administered through group policy?   Would i create two OU's, one for the server, and one for the VPN users in question and apply the group policies to those two OU's only?  The rest of the users and the network don't need QoS considerations.  Thank you.
