    In order to prevent other users to forge email addresses being created on my server. So I got the idea that user authentication (requiring authenticaton to send mail "from" my domains on the server) and a lookup list of allowed email addresses for each account would "secure" it.

    Therefore I want to set acl_check_data for Exim as follows:
    deny set acl_m_sender_address = ${address:$h_from}
    set acl_m_sender_domain = ${domain:$h_from}
    condition = ${if match_domain
    message = Only authenticated users can send mail from our domain
    ! authenticated = *

    deny set acl_m_allowed_addrs = ${lookup {$authenticated_id}
    lsearch {/etc/exim/user_allowed_addresses}}
    message = $authenticated_id is not allowed to call themselves \
    condition = ${if !match_address

    And then put allowed addresses in /etc/exim/user_allowed_addresses?

    Does someone know, how to set both in WHM? I cannot find acl_check_data or user_allowed_addresses...
