Why not turn off SMTP AUTH?

I guess I don't understand your original email.

It sounded like you were saying: I only want to accept mail for domains in rcpthosts.

If that's the case, turn of relaying entirely. You would only have to worry about external users sending email to other external users (@x.com sends to @y.com).

I can't think of an easy way to tell qmail:

1) Accept mail for local users [but only from a limited list of external domains?].
2) Accept mail for this limited list of external domains if a user authenticates with SMTP AUTH.

Do I understand correctly that that is what you're trying to do?
