Selectively set email permissions for Exchange groups

Learn how to configure permissions for a group of Exchange 2003 users to send email both internally and externally, and allow a second group to only send internally.

How can I configure Exchange Server 2003 Standard Edition to allow a group of users to send email both internally and externally from the Exchange organization, and also allow a second group to only send email internally?
This question is asked quite often. While there are many possible options, the best solution is discussed in the Microsoft article, " How to selectively prevent users from sending or receiving Internet email in Exchange Server 2003 or in Exchange 2000 Server."

I would suggest using a custom attribute (Extension Attribute ##) rather than the recommended "Description field" to define the filter for the recipient policy.
