Limiting SBS to only allow connections from a few IPs

I have a hosted spam/virus service and i want to lock down my SBS 2003 machine to only accept email from the servers at this service (I still get spam sent directly to my server).  I set it up the Default SMTP virtual server to only accept connections from these particular IPs (under Connection Control) but I continue to get spam sent directly to the server.  Where do I configure this?  I looked at the SmallBusiness SMTP Connector but didn't see anything there.

Thanks.

after setting this did you try testing it from home or somewhere that is not allowed?
telnet mailserver.domain.com 25

you set it in the right place, try a reboot?

I tried telnetting from a remote location and it was in fact working.  The issue was with the spam software, not SBS.  thanks for the help
