How to restrict netmail users to sending ONLY internal mail


Novell NetMail 3.5.2

Novell NetMail 3.1


Is there a way to allow NetMail users to only send to internal users?

Is there a way to prevent NetMail users from sending messages out to the internet?


There is actually a way to restrict users from sending external mail with the "Pluspack" for NetMail 3.1 (which is included in the 3.1G patch in the "unsupported" directory) and in NetMail 3.5.2.

The basic steps are to 1) create the Pluspack agent and then 2) configure it to allow or prevent external messages based on your users' NDS group memberships.  Page 156 of the NetMail 3.5.2 PDF documentation gives detailed instructions on how to do configure the Pluspack agent  (this document is for 3.5.2, but the information also applies to NetMail 3.1).
