How to Set Restrictions on a User

 

Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-24

In Exchange Server 2003, you can restrict who can send e-mail messages to an individual user.

noteNote:
Submission restrictions for users only function on the bridgehead servers or SMTP gateway servers that run Exchange Server 2003.

Before you perform the procedure in this topic, read Securing Your Exchange Server.

The following permissions are required to perform this procedure:

  • Member of the local administrators group and a member of a group that has had the Exchange Administrators role applied at the organizational level

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. Expand your organizational unit container, and then click Users or the container in which the user resides.

  3. In the details pane, right-click the user for which you want to restrict submissions, and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Exchange General tab, and then click Delivery Restrictions.

  5. Under Message Restrictions, under Accept messages, select one of the following options:

    • Click From authenticated users only to allow only authenticated users to send messages to the selected user. When you select From authenticated users only, this option affects how the other options are implemented.

    • Click From everyone to allow anyone who is an authenticated user to send mail to the selected user.

    • Click Only from to specify a set of authenticated users or groups that can send messages to the selected user. Click Add to specify the users or groups that you want to allow to send messages to this user.

    • Click From everyone except to allow all authenticated users but a select set to send messages to the selected user. Click Add to specify the list of users or groups that you do not want to send messages to this user.

  6. Leave From authenticated users only cleared. If you leave this check box cleared, the following options are implemented as such:

    • Click From everyone to allow anyone to send messages to the selected user. This includes anonymous users from the Internet.

    • Click Only from to specify a select set of users or groups that can send messages to the selected user. Click Add to specify the users or groups you want to allow to send messages to this user.

  7. Click From everyone except to allow everyone but a select set of users or groups to send messages to the selected user. Click Add to specify the list of users or groups that you do not want to send messages to this user. These users or groups can be authenticated users or anonymous users.
