My mail server allows for messages to valid local accounts to be
transmitted.  Therefore, you should be able to send TO me using my
mailserver, though you shouldn't be able to send to anybody else in any
remote domains.

I figured out what NJABL did.. they spoofed the senders address as
postmaster at waetech.com since that is a common email address.  I've updated
the mail engine to require SMTP authentication to send as that account.

Thank you for testing my mail server.
