Hi
  We have temporary employees and we like to limit them to send internal emails only.
  We want to prevent them from sending or receiving external emails.
   How can this be done in Exchange 2003.

thanks

To prevent them from receiving mail make sure they do not have a valid smtp domain assigned to their account.

To prevent them from sending make a group
Then prevent the group from using the internet mail connector.
This is a good reference

ok I followed the article and we have a connector sending all mails to an external smart host.
So my temporary users can still send external email but now they cannot send internal emails.

So it did not work and it made matters worse.

we already have smtp connector that is forwarding all mail to a smart host. This connector
is not using the Use DNS to route to each address space on this connector (option)
It is using Forward all mail through this connector to the following smart hosts

you should have the setting to forward to smart host on a smtp connector and not on the smart host of the server.

we have an existing smtp connector already. And it has the option to
forward all emails through this connector selected.
I am lost here.

sorry misunderstood the last one.

Did you try restarting the smtp service?

I did not
I basically just added under the delivery restrictions my temporary users.
But now they cannot send email internally but they can still send external emails

I remove my temporary user from the delivery restrictions and they can send both internal and external emails once again.
No I am not restarting the connector.

I know I really do not know why it did not work.
Remember the only difference with the smtp connector is that We had one already
with all the same configuration as the article that you sent me.
The only difference under General - we are not using the option
Use DNA to route to each address space on this connector
we are using the option below.
Forward all mail through this connector to the following smart hosts.

All other settings are the same.
Any more ideas.
thanks very much for all your assistance so far

The dns vs smart host should not really matter if you only have only 1 smtp connector.
I would try making the change and kick the smtp service just to rule it being someting dumb
