assume that, you have a pop3 email address saved on your outlook or other mail clients, if you changed your user information in account setting like the following attachment you can send [email protected] email. my mail service is postfix and i set all the sender and recipient restriction such as reject_unlisted account or reject non fqdn domains or hostname but it's not worked! how you fix this problem in your enterprise mail services? thanks

how someone using my mail relay server to send arbitrary emails via any email address!

You can use the smtpd_reject_unlisted_sender PostFix configuration directive, which is documented here.

Note that I'd also make sure to log this and get the person who does this fired immediately (unless it's a typo, of course).
