Re: MX accept policy: problem

Matti and all,

[*] No, that is WRONG syntax:
[*]    []/24

Sorry, that syntax error was just a mail typo, in my smtp-policy.src i got
no such syntax error, <duh>.

My figure is quite simple, i will explain very simply what i want, and then
i am sure you will provide a quick and clarifying response.

I have some 100 big customers which use my ZMailer server as MX backup or
ETRN MX for their domains, this makes my smtp-policy.mx file huge and kind 
of complicated to maintain manually. I thought that since all those 150 
customers were grouped in only 5 different networks i could list those
'friendly' networks in my smtp-policy.src with some special rights
so they could use my zmailer server as MX, and then get rid of (eliminate)
my smtp-policy.mx file completely for easier administration.

I have been testing something like this in my smtp-policy.src:
# this is for protection
.                       relaycustomer - acceptifmx - senderokwithdns +
[]/0             relaycustomer - acceptifmx - senderokwithdns +

[*] 	Yes, this is what for example  nic.funet.fi  runs with.
[*] 	This is all that an inbound MX processing is accepted.
[*] 	(recipient MX processing means testing for *domains*,
[*] 	 e.g. the last resort key will be '.')

# this is one of my 'friendly' networks

[]/24	rejectnet - relaycustnet - relaytarget + acceptifmx +

Mail relaying from those networks is just fine, that is *not* the issue, ok.

The suffix solution is not what i need, since all those customers have
different domain suffixes and including them in my file would be the same
as maintaining smtp-policy.mx (the amount of entries would be the same).

With that configuration when i try to send email to someone in that friendly
network - from an untrusted network - i get this in my smtpserver log:

12553#  connection from untrusted.smtpserver.com ipcnt 2 ident: NO-IDENT-SERVICE[2]

12553r  quit

What can i do to get MX reception allowed without any smtp-policy.mx file?

Thanks a lot,
