If you're not hosting your own DNS server, then you will probably need to pay someone to do it for you. Do you have your own DNS server accessible to the internet? NO DNS = NO SPF/DKIM/DMARC Right.

You do not want to deliver mail from non-company addresses?

I think the easiest way is to require authentication for external to local addresses. Then all outside domains will be required to authenticate, and obviously, they will fail and bounce.

You can change that setting in the IP ranges.
