Restrict outbound SMTP traffic for specific users

Before I totally stop my outbound SMTP traffic, I want to make sure that I understand what needs to be done.

My goal is to restrict outbound SMTP traffic for specific users.  I have an Exchange 2003 SP2 server that is currently using the Default SMTP Virtual Server to route SMTP traffic.  Since the Virtual Server Properties does not have the “Delivery Restrictions” tab, that would mean that I need to create a SMTP Connection… Correct?

I have seen a few posts that detail how to setup a SMTP Connection so that you can relay email through your ISP or other mail server, but is there anything I need to know on setting up the connection in the same manner as the Default SMTP Virtual  Server?

To restrict traffic you ALWAYS have to create an SMTP Connector. You cannot restrict the SMTP virtual server itself.

See my guide here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/restrict-internetmail.asp
