You could enable SMTP AUTH only on the submission port (587) and allow
relaying via the default SMTP port (25) based on IP. This way mail clients
on your intneral network wouldn't need a configuratin change. Clients
outside your network can set their smtp host to something like
"smtp.example.com:587" and then use SMTP AUTH.
