How do I restrict an Exchange 2007 Public Folder e-mail to 1 specific inbound outside sender

I have a public folder on Exchange 2007 that I use for e-fax purposes. I need to be able to restrict this folders e-mail to only accept 1 inbound outside address.

So, Faxes @xxxxx.com only needs to accept e-mail from message@inbound.efax.com

Looked at transport rules and mail flow on the folder itself and coming up blank.

Transport rules can do this for you, although it cannot reject the email at the point of delivery.

The rule will be something like

Sent to <address> from external sender, reject the message unless message from x

You could also try unless headers contain text, and put in the domain the messages come from.

The other way would be to create a contact for the external address, then use that to restrict the traffic.
