Isolating receipt of mail to one group of servers - SBS 2003

i'm running SBS 2003 R2 SP2.

I'm trying to isolate the receipt of mail to only one group of IP addresses (the group that belongs to the people that scrub my mail).  Under "default SMTP virtual server properties" on the "access" tab, there's "connection" and "relay".

1) am i in the right place?
2) which should i be using?
3) are there any caveats to setting exchange to operate this way?

Your best option is to configure it at the firewall, not on Exchange. Particularly with SBS placing restrictions on the SMTP virtual server can cause problems with some of the SBS functionality.
If you insist on doing it at the Exchange server, then it is Connections that you need to restrict, not relaying.

that sounds like something the router might not be able to do...  do you know if it's possible on a linksys RV042?

I haven't seen that router so cannot comment on whether it can do it or not.
