Users connecting to our Exchange 2003 server can relay if the have a valid username/password.  Which I believe is the default setting on an Exchange server.  

Is there a way to restrict smtp connection for relaying for users that doesn't specify the correct from domain name?  

For example.  If our domain was ourdomain.com , the from: part of the user email address needs to contain the @ourdomain.com before allowing to relay ?

Thanks!

This is for Exchange 2000, but should work on 2003 as well:

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

I read thought the links but it doesn't really say how it can have it so that only when it contains a specific "from domain address" will it relay be allowed for that user.  I see the documents describes how it will accept e-mails only from having a specific domain.

Basically what I'm hoping to do is.  Have smtp validate that the from: contains the @ourdomain.com before it allows the user to relay to anywhere on the net.

I've looked at this, but this doesn't let me relay based on the criteria to check that the email address has a valid from: ourdomain.com before allowing to relay.
