Acceptance rule for no authentication

Hello community!

I am testing an email client, specifically the ability to send messages with no authentication method.

AUTH = NONE

What set of rules would I need to configure to allow my axigen server to accept messages with no defined authentication method?

Based on the guide linked below I have configured the email server to use a specific type of authentication but I am not sure how to setup the rules to allow messages to pass through with no authentication method.

https://www.axigen.com/knowledgebase/How-to-configure-the-authentication-mechanisms-for-the-SMTP-service-_246.html

An example of a rule would be very much appreciated!

Hello,

Let’s say you like to allow relaying of messages without authentication from a certain IP address.

Than you should create a rule like:
conditions >> remote IP = 192.168.100.101
actions >> local delivery = allow delivery for all users & remote delivery = allow delivery for all users

Please take care of the condition(s) you will configure for your particular case as you may end in a not desired situation where your server will behave as an open relay.

HTH,
Ioan
