other specific IP addresses? Only specific IP addresses should authenitcate
with your server and all others should be permitted to relay because they
belong to a known network? Something along these lines...
- Thanks Noel. This answers my question. I was thinking on same lines.
This isn't possible without separating local mail submission from general internet incoming mail.
Probably the easiest way to do that is to require your users to submit mail on the submission port 587 or smtps port 465, and use your firewall to block or redirect port 25 from your local network. Then put whatever restrictions you want on the submission port.
