No, I meant for you to change the "smtpd_client_restrictions" entry that
you provided to "smtpd_recipient_restrictions" and remove the redundant
smtpd_recipient_restrictions from your configuration.

It was. The address was wrong.

To be clear, it's using the address provided during MAIL FROM (not the
From: header), and you're right, that's easily spoofed. But if you want
to use check_sender_access, that's what we're talking about, the

Well, I sympathize, but this may be a user issue. They need to complain
to the ISP or switch. Kudos for trying to solve their problem, but you
may be taking on a maintenance headache. Of course, you could move your
RBLs to a scoring system via a policy server or SpamAssassin if they are
causing you too many problems. Using RBLs isn't required, so I guess you
do bear some of the responsibility here.

I meant you must do this if you plan to use the bellsouth.net address as
your sender address for outgoing mail. Outgoing mail *to* bellsouth.net
is not affected by this configuration.
