275958Configuring TLS with sender login maps

      I have a fedora14 box that I'm trying to configure for use with
      postfix with dovecot and TLS, permitting only TLS connections after
      authenticating with sasl. It appears to mostly be working now, but
      mail is rejected due to "not owned by user" errors.

      server-side TLS engine

      I have created a controlled_envelope_senders that specifies the users
      that are permitted to send mail using the envelope sender:

      myuser@... alex

      But it still rejects it. Perhaps I'm not specifying it correctly? I'd
      like to make sure this is also doing what I expect it is doing, and
      that is requiring the use of TLS for sending all mail. Here is the
      output of postconf -n:

      transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport

      Are there any other options I should be concerned about with regards
      to security, and ensuring I don't become a relay or risk of
      unauthorized access?

      Any help greatly appreciated.
