Enable SMTP authentication on local delivery

As a system administrator I would like the option to limit or disable user access to the sendmail and exim binary, thereby forcing local email users to authenticate before sending emails to local users, in order to increase the security of my server, and reduce spam. cPanel's current implementation does not prevent this access, leading to increased spam and a decrease in security for my email accounts.

Yes, the feature should update.. Because this feature may help to avoid spoofing in an extend..


This should be implemented. Servers are easily used for spamming without smtp authentication on local delivery. Getting too many complaints from clients
