Any way to restrict bulk sending abilities of employees to recipients within our organizations?

My COO just asked a question, after an employee sent a farewell email to all employees (all 53) by using an "everyone" distribution list in our exchange 5.5 directory.  His question (and now mine) is, is there a way to regulate emails sent internally?  The concern is,  if this employee had sent a malicious email (instead of the pleasant one) would there be any way to regulate it?  I know it is a difficult question, with probably no real solution, but I thought I would ask.

Single Exchange 5.5 server
53 mailboxes
Single subnet domain

You can specify the maximum number of recepients a user can send a mail to. Secondly you can control who can send mails to a distribution list.

Thanks for the response, but can I ask it a different way?  

If there any way to "approve" a message before it is distributed?  In other words, before a message is sent to dist list "everyone", the message is sent to an "approver" who must approve it before it is sent out?

Thanks

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Exchange does not have such a feature built in. You can use exchange workflow to design such a solution.

Exchange Workflow is for 2000 and 2003, not 5.5 I see.

So I am getting that there is no solution for 5.5 (other then an upgrade)?

Very True. Well I guess you are aware of the fact that Exchange 5.5 is not supported my Microsoft any longer.

Yes, yet another reason I will use as ammo when I propose the budget for the upgrade to 2003...
