I have a subset of temps that ideally should only be able to send to a few internal employees, but i'll settle for anyone in AD.  Need to restrict them from sending email out of the organization, and I can't find a way to do it.

They need to have Outlook 2003 access to Exchange for other reasons, so just being able to restrict their ability to send out would be fantastic.  I see on 'delivery restrictions' how I can limit the inbound part to specific folks.

I don't think that answers it.  The inbound part is easy, referencing your second post.  I already referenced that in my own post originally.

But the sender / recipient filtering doesn't quite do what I need.  I need to limit 'bob@foobar.com' to sending only to 'joe@foobar.com' and 'mary@foobar.com'.  I can settle for bob sending to anyone@foobar.com, but in a perfect world he only gets to sent email to those specific folks only, and NO ONE in the outside world

I don't think you can control email to the level of being able to send to just a few internal users.
Most people are happy for the users to be able to send to anyone internally, but not externally.

When reading the article at msexchange.org make sure that you read the one that is referenced.

That is the article that actually deals with stopping external email from being sent and received.
