Sendmail Relay Question

I have an internal smtp server (behind a firewall). This server is dedicated to sending mail from LAN users only. I am able to accomplish this by adding the entry: 192.168 RELAY then the make map command....
to the /etc/mail/access file. I have experienced no issues with this until my latest request. I have remote vpn users that would like to send mail using this internal smtp server. The remote VPN users do not have an internal LAN address (192.168.1.XX). I believe that I could solve this issue by adding another entry to the access file. Can I add and entry something to the effect saying 'relay all requests"? My smtp server is behind the firewall which is relatively protected from spamers.

I am running an older version of Linux -- Redhat 7.0.

Thanks for any help.
