A long title, can’t find a shorter words to express it. Every Exchange server administrator will face this challenge some times. The management will usually restrict most users from sending internet mail, only a few authorized users have the privellege to do so. This is always the standard rules (check this article “Restricting users from Sending and Receiving Internet Mail in Exchange 2003″ on MSExchange.org by Mark Fugatt). As time passed by, sometimes the company needs all the users to be able to sent mail to some one else which happens to be in another domain. Unfortunately the administrator have blocked all the outbound mail on the transport level. So… how do we do it ? 

Here’s how to do it :

  • Create a new SMTP Connector to reject all messages by default
  • Place the group of users who will be allowed to sent mail to the specific domain to the accept message from option
  • The most important part, on the address space add that specific domain

And the problem solve once again.

Write me an email if you like to get a step by step how to’s on this.
