This looks good:
Quote:
authorized_submit_users (default: static:anyone)
List of users who are authorized to submit mail with the sendmail(1) command (and with the privileged postdrop(1) helper command).
For details see http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.ht...d_submit_users and the man pages for sendmail and postdrop.
