Here is the problem: From any IP address not belonging to your mail server:
telnet me.myemailserver.com 25 helo me.someserver.com mail from: <firstname.lastname@example.org> rcpt to: <email@example.com> data This is spam. Buy my stuff. .
I'm using Postfix. I'm having a problem finding a solution to requiring SMTP-AUTH for email claiming to be from mydomain.com.
Googling around, this guy has identified the same problem (where I cut-n-paste with some modifications) the above example from: http://www.smartertools.com/forums/t/13182.aspx
This link http://marc.info/?l=postfix-users&m=122814832915131&w=2 gets close to a solution but it has a side effect of requiring SMTP-AUTH for mail not from mydomain.com. For mail not claiming to be from mydomain.com, I would do the usual RBL and Spam filtering.
In short, I want to reject mail to local domains (mydomain.com) from outside/unauthenticated clients claiming to be from local domains (mydomain.com).
This is what I tried: I've tried both permit and reject as the default. Here is exact excerpt from my main.cf:
smtpd_recipient_restrictions = reject_unauth_pipelining, permit_sasl_authenticated, check_recipient_access pgsql:/etc/postfix/pgsql-recipient.cf, reject_unauthenticated_sender_login_mismatch, reject_unauth_destination, reject_unlisted_recipient, check_sender_access pgsql:/etc/postfix/pgsql-sender.cf, reject_unlisted_sender, reject_invalid_hostname, reject_non_fqdn_hostname, reject_non_fqdn_sender, reject_non_fqdn_recipient, reject_unknown_sender_domain, reject_unknown_recipient_domain, reject_rbl_client cbl.abuseat.org, reject_rbl_client sbl.spamhaus.org, reject_rbl_client sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org, reject_rbl_client bl.spamcop.net, reject_rbl_client dnsbl.njabl.org, reject_rbl_client blackholes.wirehub.net, reject_rbl_client relays.mail-abuse.org, reject_rbl_client dialups.mail-abuse.org, reject_rbl_client blackholes.mail-abuse.org, reject_rhsbl_sender dsn.rfc-ignorant.org, (reject and permit both tried here)
