Blocking external messages

By schau ·
"By default, mail-enabled groups can receive messages from everyone in an Exchange organization. You can set restrictions so that messages can be accepted only from a specific list of recipients, or you can allow messages to be accepted from everyone except a specific list of recipients."
The above excerpt is from Exchange 2000 Help. How do you prevent mail-enabled groups from receiving messages that come from OUTSIDE an Exchange organization?

On the Properties of the group go to the Exchange General tab and set "Message restrictions" to accept messages "only from" and select a group you wish to allow to send messages to this group(for instance "AllUsers" if you have one).

Now this will also restrict your users that attempt to send email from home using a personal email account. To get around this you can create a group called OffsiteEmailUsers (call it whatever you like) and add this as a group that can send mail to the restricted groups. This offsite group needs to contain mail-enabled contacts for each authorized off-site email address.

Hope this helps.
