I have some users in my network restricted from receiving outside email.  I did this by simply checking the little Authenticated Users box in my exchange 2003 install.  Now of course I have another issue.  Is there a way to leave the account the way it is but add certain outside email addresses that are allowed to come into these accounts without allowing all outside email to enter?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

AN SMTP Connector will only work for outbound email, not inbound. If you want to restrict users inbound email then that isn't going to be as straight froward. You could try creating contacts for each address and then adding them to the list of people that the account can receive email from. I haven't tried that myself, so cannot be 100% sure that it works.

Contacts are in AD, that is why you have to create them to do the forwarding on AD accounts. However it does mean using a list of senders rather than authenticated users option.
