Here's how ours is set up:
Domino Administrator (r5+)
Configuration tab
Expand Messaging
Click Messsaging Settings
Restrictions and Controls tab
SMTP Inbound Controls
Allow messages only from the following external internet hosts to be sent to external internet domains:
I've entered a list of all the ISPs that our users use to connect to the internet: (example) aol.com

Seems to be working for us...

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,
