Advice on handling email for multiple offices

I am currently reviewing the setup for a medium size engineering firm. They have a main office and 4 small satellite offices. The main office has an exchange server (2003?) that the satellite offices POP. What are some better ways of handling this situation. All of the satellite offices use basic peer-to-peer networking and there is no real need to have them authenticate to the network at the main office. They do not share files.

You could look at using Outlook Anywhere instead of POP. This would let the remote users run outlook normally just in a cached mode with outlook anywhere for connecting to the server. I am assuming since they use POP they have some form of connection back to the server.

This article walks though setting up Outlook Anywhere:
