I have a Domino environment (version 4.6a) with SMTPMTA installed to E-mail via internet.

How can I prevent that certain users can´t use this option and use only notes mail ?

Unfortunately, there is no way to dissallow users access. Once you have opened your environment with a gateway, everybody has access to it.
The only way is to monitor the gateway and reprimand people who send internet Email. Tell them that they are not allowed to use it via official memorandum and report anyone who does.

I know this seems strange but I've been through this same problem once before - we could find no way of stopping people from sending external emails.

I was afraid somebody is gonna tell me this, but aren´t there any thrd party tools who can, or isn´t it possible to write a agent in the Outbound Workqueue that will check for certain rights ?

I don't know of any third party products that would do this. One way is to give your Internet domain a silly name like "Admin" or something - this means that people don't know how to address Emails. ordinarily you would add @internet to the end of an address.

You could try MIME sweeper, which will run on your firewally and supposedly can block e-mail from particular e-mail addresses.  Not quite sure what it does with them but we are getting it in on evaluation soon.

There is a third party product by a company called Integro called Mail Sentry.  It limits who can send/receive Internet Email via Notes and also who can send and receive attachments.  I have set this  up in my environment and it works very well.

Let me know if you need more info....
