How do I block mail from a specific address to all but 5 specific users?

Using Exchange 2003...

We want to block/bounce e-mail from a specific address to all users with the exception of 5 specific users.  

We are currently having all mail from this address forwarded to a mailbox which then runs certain rules in Outlook to either bounce the message or forward it to the "allowed" users.  This is not the desired approach...it is not fully automated and suffers from a few other challenges.

I have found the "Delivery Restrictions" dialog in the "Exchange General" tab of user properties in AD.  In there is the option for allowing mail "from everyone except"...I click the "add" button, but it appears to want an AD object to complete the task.  I want to enter an outside e-mail address (somebody@xyz.com).

Am I barking up the wrong tree?

What is the best approach to accomplish this?

TIA.

Hi northborough,

Create a mail enabled contact with the external address that you want to bounce, then you can add them to the "accept from all except..." box

OK...that's it!

Follow up question...

Must I apply this individually to each user, or can I apply it to a group (or some other more efficeint approach)?

If you have 20 users, then I would do it manually

More than that, you could possibly script it, but I do not know how you would do that :)

As for applying to a group, that isn't going to work either (it will just protect the group)
