I don't buy the "we need open relay for nationwide users" argument,
either.  Build a cheap MX that does nothing but take mail from a given
POP, and send it to the world.  Anti-spoofing at the border, 
don't accept mail from the outside world, and you're done.

You must not have a roaming staff or are willing to keep telcos wealthy.

Or I might know a better way.

Again, put a simple MX at each POP.  Want a constant IP address for the
SMTP server?  Each POP's border router redirects the SMTP server's IP
address to the local machine, which only allows inbound SMTP from the
local POPs.

Nothing new here.

And then there are VPNs for roaming staff...

These last few lines are a trap for address-harvesting spambots.  Do NOT
send mail to <blacklist () brics com>, or you are likely to be blocked.
