We have a private mailbox on Exchange Server 2003 that is restricted through the settings in Active Directory so that only certain internal users can send to it.

We want to remove the restriction from all external addresses, while still maintaining it for specific internal accounts.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Remove the current restrictions and select "accept mail from all users".  Then add all the users that shouldn't be able to send mail to that mailbox in the "reject mail from" box.

Thanks for your response. That is a practical suggestion, but only if there are relatively few users with restricted access.  However, we want to restrict the mailbox to everyone in the company except for a small group with permission to send.

Of course I could create a new group in Active Directory called "Restricted Users" to deny access to the mailbox.  Then I could add everyone to the group and remove the few users who can send.  But that would require continual maintenance - every new user would have to be manually added to "Restricted Users" or else they would have the default permission to send to the mailbox.

Please at least leave it as an open question, so that maybe someone in the future will happen to find an answer.
