Oops, missed that one while writing them.

Now browsing the code I would say -- it does not make sense at all.
It behaves sort of "if this attribute is present at MAIL FROM domain,
then RCPT TO addresses shall be given 'acceptifmx' treatment."

Ah well, define new alias tag into  smtp-policy.src:

  _localnames	rejectnet - relaycustnet - localdomain + relaytarget +

and modify  policy-builder.sh  to produce  "_localnames" for each line
from  "localnames"  source file.

Then regenerate your policy dataset, and nobody goes thru just by defining
your local domain as the source domain in MAIL FROM.
