Prevent internal users from sending to everybody

I would like to prevent some of the junior users from sending to everybody@mydomain.com. Is it at all possible?

Reasoning is that, typically someone will think its a good idea to send something to "everybody" when in fact they are actually spamming due to ignorance.

Even if it is possible, which I doubt,  to remove the everybody group, I do not want to do that because then it prevents legit mails from management or HR.

So the question is. Is it at all possible to remove a user or group of users from SENDING to everybody on the domain?

You can restrict sending to a distribution group, simply right-click on the group, choose Properties and on one of the Exchange-tabs you can configure the restrictions.

You aren't going to be able to stop them from either creating a personal distribution list with everyone in the GAL in it, or from picking everyone from the GAL and adding them to the 'To:' field though

abhaigh: Thats true but then instead of it being a matter of ignorance it will be purposeful abuse, which I will nail them to the wall for.
