To access public folders will require a mail enabled account.

You can then just limit that account/s on what they can login to and use transport rules to stop them from emailing out with the account.

You can add the account to a remote Outlook if Outlook 2010 or higher, using Outlook Anywhere.

is this just by using the exchange server name and user account and password
when the external user opens outlook they will be prompted for username and password every time ?

It would be the Outlook Anywhere address and would require Autodiscover working correctly.
A username and password prompt would be generated because they need to authenticate against your domain.

There is no real solution to this unfortunately. You could have the email in a shared mailbox and then use OWA instead - still requires an account to authenticate against.

Transport rules will stop them from getting email, just create a rule to block all email.
However GAL is a lot more complex. You haven't said which version of Exchange you are using. If Exchange 2007 or older then not really.
If Exchange 2010 or higher then an address book policy will do the job for you.
