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 only needs to accept e-mail from

    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.
