Okay here is what you would need to do assuming the answer to my last
email was yes.  Now depending on how your postfix is setup you may not
have a separate instance for incoming and outgoing, in that case change
any place I have "/etc/postfix.in" to "/etc/postfix" and things should
work.  I will just outline the steps quick, first modify your main.cf to
use a client access table (you can google client_access to get a list of
commands and explanations, I will show you how to prevent a user from
connecting).  Then create the file client_access and enter your IP's
each on a new line followed by a tab and then the action to take.  Next
issue the postmap command on the file, and last restart MailScanner.

# vi /etc/postfix.in/main.cf
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = check_client_access

# vi /etc/postfix.in/client_access	DISCARD	DISCARD

# postmap /etc/postfix.in/client_access
# /etc/init.d/MailScanner restart

Let me know if you have any other questions.
