Blocking emails between groups

All,

Is there anyway I can setup rules in Exchange 2003 to not allow users from group A to email users from group B?

How would I do that?
With Exchange 2003 - not easily.
The only way you can do it is to change the setting on each account to list the users who cannot send. This is set on the Properties of the user, under Exchange General, Delivery Restrictions.

Exchange 2007 makes this easy.

I'm actually thinking of upgrading to Exchange 2007 soon.  Would you mine telling me how to do it?

Actually have to say that the solution you have expected I don't think is correct.
All that does is stop the users in Group A from emailing Group B. There is nothing to stop a user from simply expanding the group and sending the email to all members directly. Is that what you want to do? If it is, then the solution you have accepted is not correct.

My ultimate goal is to block users from Group A to Group B and vice versa for compliance reasons. I think this solution will work.
No it will not. If you want to block users from a group (As in a group of people not a Email Enabled Group) sending to another group then the solution you have accepted above will not work. All it does is stop users from Email Group A emailing Group B. It does NOT stop users in Group A from email anyone who is a member of Group B.
