Qmail traffic control


I have an issue with Qmail. I need to prevent sending messages outside my domain for certain users, while others can send with no restriction.

For example, I am the mail admin for If the mail is, I need the user "itsme" to only send messages to addresses within the domain "", while other users in the same domain (for example, can send messages to entire world.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

I imagine you've set the RELAYCLIENT variable somehow for your users, correct? If you remove that variable for those users who should NOT be able to send outside the building, qmail will give them an error when they try to send to any domain not in the rcpthosts file.
