If you are talking about a Contact list in a public folder then you may be out 
of luck.  They'll have to use Outlook Web Access to see it.  You can re-enable 
access to the GAL (partially) by installing the LDAP service withing Outlook 
and connecting it to your Exchange Server.  It isn't easy to set up (if you 
aren't familiar with LDAP) and it doesn't work as well as having Outlook 
connected in corporate mode.
Many things will NOT work in corporate shared calendaring, for 
instance.  I hope you considered the implications of switching to POP before 
you did so.  I use POP for some remote clients but anyone with a WAN/VPN 
connection of adequate speed will want to be connected via corporate mode.
