Thanks for replying.  This is exactly what we did this past Thursday.  It
appeared to work great, however some emails were being bounced back to the
sender with a message like:  "Server Error: 554; SMTP message rejected for
policy reasons."  Not all messages were rejected, only some.  This is why
I'm so confused as to what to put in the "Allow / Deny" fields.  I don't
understand why some messages would be allowed and others be rejected.

Thanks for taking the time to respond,
