Sending or receiving.

For receiving, you can modify your MTA to /dev/null or reject mail to
specified accounts.

For sending, your best bet is to run a second system as a mailserver,
allow only it to send outbound port 25 mail (via firewall rules), and
allow mail for only specified accounts (via MTA configuration).
