If one is willing to consider replacing sendmail with postfix it appears there may be several ways to restrict who may send messages to an address. "man 5 access" and "man 5 header_checks" are my first guesses. Header_checks seems to run before the message is queued. If there is a match you can accept, reject, redirect, or many other things. OTOH if only a few people are allowed to send to all-staff then maybe it would be best to manually maintain a mail list in their personal address books? Another way to deal with it would be to rewrite the all-staff header with a bogus undeliverable address so that the minions don't know what the single whole world address is? So that if they reply it doesn't deliver, or it only delivers to a few select people? Only the privileged few know the real-all-staff email address. I know, its "security by obscurity" but when absolute security is not needed and all that is needed is protection from the ignorant its often plenty good enough. -- David Kelly N4HHE, [EMAIL PROTECTED] ======================================================================== Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
