Subject: [exchangelist] Disabling SMTP addresses in Exch 2k3


This is a question posed by some of my VIP's upstairs...

They would like to restrict the regular users from recieving or sending SMTP
mail to and from the outside. They want them to retain the ability to email
internally between the users. I am in the middle of my migration from 5.5 to
2k3 and have been successful in my initial deployment to my UK site. I have
gone in, using a theory, and removed the SMTP address on a test 5.5 account,
leaving only the X.400 address for the account. This made it so that I was
able to send internally, but not externally. It also precluded any email
being delivered to this account from the outside.
When I tried to do this on an account that is homed on the Exch 2K3 box, the
account would not let me remove the SMTP address. This makes sense, I
realize that 2K3 uses SMTP for more than just an address.

There will be some higher ups that will continue to require the ability to
send and recieve to and from the outside. But they would like to cut down on
the time spent by the users on non-business email. Which is considerable.

The question is, is there anyway, that any of the knowledgable admins in
this well regarded list know of, to affect the desired result?

Thanx for all of the responses in advance.
