If you can get your users to configure ssl (a checkbox option
on most mailers these days), I'd go with stunnel so the
internet side is encrypted.  If you plan to accept mail from
roaming internet users you'll also need to set up smtp
authentication which means either letting the 'outside' box
have access to the passwords or also using stunnel to pass
the connections through to the inside server.
