  • Restricting User to Intranet Email Only - Exchange 2000

    Good morning campers!

    I have found a need to restrict a few of my users to intranet email only. THey have no business need to send email outside of the company. I really wouldn't be worried about doing this but they seem to have enough free time to generate/send/reply to chain letter emails and have gotten our domain blacklisted once.

    So since they are not heedign warnings, I have to go draconian on them and kill their external email.

    I haven't had much luck finding info on the correct way to do this. Anyone care to point me in the right direction?

    Thanks
    Chris

    exchange general tab.
    message resrtictions.
    add:
    only accept email from...
    domain users

    this will prevent outside mail from being delivered to internal users, unless they are from work accounts.

    to prevent sending, i would create a security group and work with it, since you have several members that fit this need. there are plenty of write ups on how to block user sending...
    its easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

          Thanks Sembee,

          That looks very much like what I found Friday night. I will keep everyone posted as to how well it works.

          Thanks
