XF 1.4 Restrict Registered User Conversations to Staff

I'd like to restrict my newly registered users from starting conversations with anyone other than a certain user group (staff), is this possible?

No, there is no option for that in the core.

There may be an add-on which can do it (but I'm not aware of one).
Just in case anyone else has the same question, my solution was to not allow new conversations to be started by registered users. I then used the add-on Start New Conversation to open a conversation from staff that new users can reply to - they just cannot start their own in order to spam users.
