Wayne: You might want to consider SMTP AUTH, assuming your mail clients support it. POP before SMTP is a hack that sort of works, but causes problems, especially as many clients insist on sending before popping! I use SMTP AUTH with sendmail so can't help you with postfix, but you could try starting here: http://postfix.state-of-mind.de/patrick.koetter/smtpauth/
