Postfix smtpd_restriction_classes for Dummies - Part II

OK, another example for those of you who still don't get it:


I have a customer who wants a setup where all his users can send mail to each other internally, all users will be able to receive email from the outside but only some of the users will be able to send mail outside.


In main.cf, use:

mynetworks =

smtpd_restriction_classes =
smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
   check_client_access hash:/etc/postfix/policy_by_machines
   # Alternative:
   # check_sender_access hash:/etc/postfix/policy_by_senders
   ... your favourite anti spam stuff here ...

may_use_external_mail =
   # allow ANY mail
only_internal_mail =
   check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/allowed_recipients
   # allow internal mail

in /etc/postfix/policy_by_machines:

workstation1.internal.domain       may_use_external_mail
workstation2.internal.domain       only_internal_mail

or for the alternative, use in /etc/postfix/policy_by_senders:

user1@your.domain                  may_use_external_mail
user2@your.domain                  only_internal_mail

in /etc/postfix/allowed_recipients:

your.domain                        OK
