    There's no easy GUI or CLI method of doing this at the moment; but it's possible with some Postfix re-configuration. There are some details in the wiki - RestrictPostfixRecipients - Zimbra :: Wiki.

    Two bugs you may wish to vote for:

    I noticed that
    "This method can be spoofed by forging the MAIL FROM: header (so mail appears to originate from within the domain), so it isn't foolproof, but it works for basic needs"

    And this is currently our biggest issue right now. We will receive message from staff members but the sending SMTP is overseas.
