Hmm... The RCPT TO to your site should be all that is
needed for delivering to your system...

Adding "rejectsource +" to the source domain you don't want
to accept is an option. That is a part of SPAM mechanisms.
For most users rejecting their own domain when input via
SMTP is not *quite* doable thing, but you may be the rare
A way out of possible "I want to submit to that host with
my PC SMTP client" problem is that "fullstrustnet +" for
the source *IP-address* overrides the "rejectsource +" test.
You can also use "freezesource +" attribute in place of
"rejectsource +", in case you are curious of what people
try to feed to you.
