SMTP anti-relay policy problems...

(while composing this I have been interrupted quite a many times..)


  When tested with lattest  http://maps.vix.com/tsi/ar-test.html
  relay-prober, every published version of ZMailer (at ftp.funet.fi)
  is sort of vulnerable.

  The thing is, earlier that system tried to do:


  and those have been rejected for a long time, but now they
  do test with:


  This has been allowed thru the system up until late May/early June,
  when I made two changes into the configuration scripts related to
  this issue.

  You may wonder why this has been okay way to relay...  well, 1) I too
  am lazy, and allowing relaying to all clients who claim MAIL FROM to
  be of local domain has been easy way to handle certain wide-spread
  cases...  2) this was not *quite* centrally important variant of the

  The fix to correct this problem:

  I have now made some aspects on this issue a bit clearer (I hope)
  by providing (in my CVS) more detailed examples on what you should
  do with the  smtp-policy.src,  and  smtp-policy.relay, plus
  policy-builder.sh(.in) files/programs.

  I am now trying to do cross-checking of compiling in varying
  environments -- other compilers than GCC (Linux/Solaris), then
  (latter tonight) there will be snapshot file at ftp.funet.fi,
  which I hope to be final 2.99.50.
