:fail: gets bypassed for auth users

    Trophy Points:

    I noticed that when a domain's default address is set to :fail: it rejects the mails sent to invalid addresses correctly at SMTP time.

    However, if the SMTP session was originated from an IP address which has already authenticated within the last few minutes to any of the POP accounts on the server, the :fail: checking gets ignored, and the SMTP accepts the mail.

    The server then generates an NDR and bounces the mail.

    It appears that if the IP is allowed relay, this function is bypassed, though I can see in the logs :
    2008-03-17 16:23:24 1JbCy3-00088m-2l ** R=virtual_aliases: No such person at this address

    Any solution for this?
