As you can see, the
localhost, the internal subnet
10.0.0., and the external server's IP are allowed to use the MTA as a relay (RELAYCLIENT=""), and does not face a GREETDELAY.
All other clients are allowed to send us emails (
allow:), will face a GREETDELAY specified in the
qmail-smtpd run script, and are not allowed to use our MTA as a relay.
And since we want to allow ourselves to use our MTA as a remote relay, the
tcp.submission rules have to be simply:
> more /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.submission :allow
And nobody is allowed to use the submission service (port 587) as an open relay without authentication.
