	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.
