We have some of the users communication with internal (within company- @abc.com )  . how can I achieve this . Just I am thinking  putting transport rule on this . is that the correct way to go . we have only 10to 15 users in that category.we don't want these users to get access to external mail(internet  like hotmail.com)

If you install Exchange 2010 properly, your users can send emails internally as well as externally.

If you dont want users to send emails to @hotmail.com / @yahoo.com - you can setup a Transport rule and notify the sender, that this is a violation of company policy.

See here

OR you can block access to hotmail via firewall
I am really not clear what your question is ? Can you explain what you are trying to do

You can setup transport rules according to that article.

It's better to set it up for hotmail / yahoo / gmail (big3).
When  users start getting automatic alerts - they know they are being watched and you can put a note - that your last action was logged in the system for compliance purposes :).

People stop emailing after that.
