Exim: Restrict Authenticated Outgoing Email with Sender Domain

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Most of the outgoing SMTP server allowed the user to set different sender email address once it is authenticated. But we might be in risk for allowing the user to send outgoing bulk/spam email via authenticated SMTP with different sender email address.

In Exim mail MTA, it can restricts at the SMTP authenticated transport.


accept  authenticated = *
          sender_domains = < the_domain_name_1 > : < the_domain_name_2 >  
          control       = submission
          control       = dkim_disable_verify

Usually local_domains is the list of the domain hosted on Exim mail server, it can be configured as below too.


accept  authenticated = *
          sender_domains = +local_domains
          control       = submission
          control       = dkim_disable_verify
