One thing you can achieve in Exchange 2003 is Sender filtering wherein you can block the emails sent from a email id or for the domain.

But if you want to accept the mail only from a particular user and block all the mails orginating form the domain believe you have to use 3rd party applications such as Anti-spam filter software where you have versatility to filter or allow individual users.

We can do it in exchange 2007 but not in 2003. There is no inbuilt mechanism in E2K3 to achieve this but it is possible to restrict the entire incoming Internet email to user.
