Unhappy Need to block certain mail user on Fedora 2


I'm using Redhat Linux Fedora 2. We have our own domain. The users at head office can send mail anywhere and receive from anywhere,taht's fine. But I wan't set up mail for the branches, I already set up their e-mail addresses and users but haven't installed at the branches yet. I want to block them them from sending mail anywhere else than out own domain, basically head office. eg: they must only be able to send mail to user@mydomain.com no where else. Please help. I'm using Sendmail.

What mail server are you using?
If it's Postfix, just set up some transport rules to limit outgoing mails.

I also replied to a post similar to yours, quite recently. Search around on the forum and you will find it.

I'm using sendmail.

Excuse my silly questions. I know Unix and am new to Linux especially the GUI. How do you set up transport rules?

A little forum searchin' on the Newbie forum showed revealed my earlier post, that contained the
following URL. Maybe that site can help you too.

http://www.skillreactor.org/tutortxt...tm#send_mta_cf

As for sendmail configuration, I'm no expert either, so I can't help you with that.

Did'nt help.

I'm not sure if I am putting clearly what I want.

Let's say I have two users: User1 and User2

User1@mydomain.com can send e-mail anywhere but I want user2@mydomain.com to only be able to sendmail to anyone@mydomain.com and nowhere else. How do I do that.

I hace got a total of 22 User whom I want to set up to only send mail to anyone@mydomain.com

the rest of the user can send anywhere.
