Well, exim certainly has the capability to allow relaying from/to certain
IP ranges.  Our major mail server for example has:

sender_net_accept_relay = ""

So that Eudora users within the 131.111 domain can use us as a smarthost.
I tell people that if they want to send mail from outside that domain they
will need to log into the machine using telnet/rlogin/ssh and use an MUA
on the machine itself, or arrange with a more local system to act as a
smarthost while they're not in Cambridge.
