Outlook Web Access Basics

Currently our emails are from third party service providers where each email is configured on outlook on every PC with POP3 configuration. Now the management is concerned to have an email server or solution like OUTLOOK WEB ACCESS so it is easier and also secure to access the emails with no headaches of taking care of .pst files on individual PC's. I have never setup the exchange emails so this is going to be my first experience with it, so was wondering if I have to take any basic steps before I begin experimenting.

Actually I am the only person who needs to take care of all the IT needs over here and they don't want to invest on any other "solutions" and that's where I seek help from EE experts
Experts Exchange is like having an extremely knowledgeable team sitting and waiting for your call. Couldn't do my job half as well as I do without it!

But even if I have individual accounts setup on each OUTLOOK client, is it possible to map .pst files to server so in case of a disaster I still have .pst files of all domain users ?
