Use exchange to send external mail only

Our CEO would like to promote other forms of communication, rather than just relying on e-mail. I have an Exchange 2003 Enterprise Cluster. I know that you can limit Exchange to work internally only, but can you have it work the other way around. I do not want to disrupt mails sent externally, but copied internally. I would like to make this work, as we need to get people up from their desks for a week talking to people, or at least using the phone. Any ideas would be greatfully received.

If this is SP2, you may be able to configure the smtp virtuals to only accept mail from the front ends (if you have a front-back topology).

Internal mail doesn't go via SMTP,

I think the only way you are going to achieve this is with internal policies, Exchange is never going to be happy if you want to stop internal communications like that (and would you really want to DENY ALL internall communications? including meeting requests, staff notices, etc?)

Not going to be easy with the current version of Exchange.
Exchange 2007 should be able to do this easily, but Exchange 2003 is going to be difficult, if not impossible.

Using admodify hide all ur users from global address list....and they wont be able to send to each other but wont prevent them from sending to external or receiving from external.....

this may not work if everyone has added everyone else to personal address list...which i doubt....

once the experimrent is over just UNHIDE ur users....

If these folks have email each other already, then each Outlook would have cached the addresses. You can remove the cache file but then they lose all cache addresses. My clients get perturbed by that, but hey, this is a strange experiement anyway!
