And I have another issue:

Is it possible to force auth even for emails on local server?
If I delete content of rctphosts users need to auth when sending email, but when you try to send email from any other server to your local server you get error:
Code:
Remote host said: 553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)


I would assume that would create a lot of mess for other applications as well. I wouldn't even think of trying that.
What purpose would that serve?

I need it in case that f.e. John will send email to Janet from Steven's address. I'd like to prevent that kind of situations.
Maybe there's some other way to do that ?

Well, you could setup squirrelmail with multiple identities. See https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-539101.html#3899812
Same thing can be done with most email clients.

I think you hadn't understood me ;]

I have only one domain. There is almost 100 users. I'd like to prevent that one user will use another's user account to send emails. That's why I'd like to force smtp auth.

With 100 users I would assume they are on local network, not localhost. If so you'll just need to set allow relay from localhost only in your tcprules.
