Exchange 2010 SP2 Rollup 4.

I have a unique situation where I need to restrict users from sending to anyone that is not a member of a local distribution group  (all in the same email domain).  I want a closed cell of 20 users that can only send and receive from each other.  I have already used delivery restrictions to prevent them from receiving email from anyone else, but now I need to lock down sending.  They must not be able to send to any address outside a specific group, OU, or email domain.  If it helps, I have them broken out into their own GAL that is segregated from the rest of the Exchange org as well.

I had thought that 2010's transport rules could facilitate that, but all of the options I'm seeing would require a negative operator (NOT, NE, !=) and that doesn't appear to be an option.  I hope I'm missing something.  It wouldn't be the first time.

Is there a way to do this?  If so, what would transport overhead look like?  I'm pretty comfortable with EMS so Powershell it up if required.

Essentially, I am looking for an "approved recipients" restriction for a group of users.

Thanks!
