I would also like this feature. I have a client that uses a third party
to scan his email for spam and viruses. I would love to limit access to
SMTP to the FQDN of the host that forwards the mail to the client's
server. The third party said they would prefer that I not set a firewall
rule based on IP address in case they needed to change the IP. Any
change in the IP would break the forward until the firewall rule was
changed...
