We are facing with some problems after migrating our mail server to Kerio.

There is no option to disable only the reception of mail from outsidefor a specific group.

The only available option is very restricted (this group can send/receive email from).

Is there any solution to apply such filters ?

The 'solution' you get from Kerio, is to use a random INTERNAL account, and make a Forward on that to the Group. Then have people use the Account to send to the Group.
My/our response has been: While that is a temporary workaround, it also means we will have to use LICENSES for each Group - that is NOT a valid solution to a missing feature in the server.
Further, it breaks the functionality of using Directory Groups as mailgroups. This means we need to update groups more than on place, adding workload, steps that can go wrong/be missed, and it means We have to Work For the Computer, not the Computer to Work For US. I tend to like the second way.

I can't tell enough how much this is driving us and customers crazy, so please go add to the pile of ER/bug reports on this.
