Do you want JAMES to act as MX server for your domain? Or do you simply
want to enable an Authenticated-users only mail submission service?

The first is the default for JAMES Server, so simply revert changes you
did to remove the receiving part.

Unfortunately as soon as you'll accept mail for a domain you will also
receive spam. You can try enabling online blacklists and bayes filters,
but this will only help a bit.
