This prevents sendmail/postfix from accepting mail for delivery from
interfaces other than localhost. Note that once mail has been accepted
for delivery, there is no restriction as where this mail will be
delivered to. This is a useless restriction for preventing any local
users from sending mail to anywhere on the internet. Note also that mail
can be given to sendmail/postfix for delivery by anyone calling
/usr/sbin/sendmail.
