Postfix: allow select users permission to send to a cretin address

So the idea here is to have an email address that you would only like a select few to have access to email to, for example, a everyone or all address. In this example we will be locking down the email address and only allow the address to send to it.

In /etc/postfix/ add the following:

smtpd_restrictions_classes =  restricted_recipient
  • note: This is in smtpd_SENDER_restrictions to avoid becoming an open relay because of the “OK” below.
smtpd_sender_restrictions =
  check_recipient_access hash:/etc/postfix/restricted_recipientrestricted_recipient =
  check_sender_access hash:/etc/postfix/privileged_sender

restricted_recipient:         restricted_recipient

privileged_sender:         OK
