There is an option named sender_host_reject which might be what you need.
Alternatively, if you're running exim from inetd you can use the tcpd wrapper
and use hosts.allow and hosts.deny to deny incoming connection from other
sites (see hosts_access(5)).

But I am not sure it is the right thing to do, why wouldnt you want to receive
mail directly?
