Not sure if this can help you, but on my single machine email system i 
have MailScanner installed and postfix to
listen on smtps (465) with sasl authentication. That way when an 
employee is outside of the college, he is forced to
enter his email password before the mail is sent. This prevents the 
"open relay".

I also have a webmail installed in case someone wants to use it.
