Restrict Postfix Users from sending mail to outside the local network


Hi,

I have configured Postfix on Fedora 3 m/c.

I want to restrict certain users from sending mail outside the local network.

Say for example my local network is abc.com. I want to restrcit user a@abc.com from sending mail to anybody but to another abc.com account. Whereas say another account b@abc.com can send mail to anybody and everybody on this whole wide planet.

Can anybody help me how to configure Postfix to do this.

Regards

First, the restriction class readme linked above is really the thing that shud be followed.

But I cudnt do it in FC3 - but in FC5, cause Postfix versions did not match. I did not try with FC4 so cant say whether it works or not.
