Question Of Sendmail and outlook please help


I'm still climbing the linux expert ladder and i've gone up only a few notches up, so i really need some expert advice from you guys. What i need is probably simple.

I have a linux server (Mandrake 8.2) which was being used for email (popping and sending using outlook clients) Now the organisation has decided to use an existing Lotus Domino server which is inside the Local area network for all external email. The linux server(running sendmail) now acts as a mail proxy which routes all email to the Domino Server.

The problem i have now is the outlook clients are *still* configured to pop and send directly to linux and i want to disable that on the linux server. Popping is not really a problem i figured you can disable the pop3d service but how do you disable clients from sending directly to my sendmail box?

There are more than 700 clients and everyone has lotus notes so we just notified people to use outlook instead on outlook but some people are still using outlook. No reconfiguration of clients took place.

Just set some firewall rules to stop clients sending to port 25.
