Well an easy way is to switch to sendmail :-P
The exim documentation is in /usr/share/doc/exim/spec.txt.gz. It is a terrible
read, but it is all there.
At the bottom of /etc/exim/exim.conf you should see some rewrite rules similar
/etc/email-addresses is fairly straight forward.
According to the Spec "6.6 Default values in single-key lookups"
You can have a '*' entry in /etc/email-addresses that will catch any email
address that does not have a specific entry. This should help you to atleast
rewrite those "other users."
"my.domain" above probably has to be the same as "qualify_domain" set earlier
I found that the above rewrite rule rewrote more then I wanted to. Instead I
use the headers_rewrite option in my remote_smtp router block. This way only
email that leaves my network gets rewritten. I think that the whole rewrite
rule can be move to the remote_smtp router block, but I am not sure. Please
read the section on rewrite rules.
I am not sure how to block certain users. When I figure it out I will post.
