Could you describe the symptoms of your problem? What is your current
config like?

A brief explaination of the things you've tried would help your audience
know better how to help you.

I've got this in my acl_check_data acl:

accept hosts =
accept authenticated = *

now, this is at the top of the acl so that if the sender is
authenticated, the additional conditions are ignored. this way you can
apply more stringent checks to non-authenticated users.

If this does not work for you, please provide full details of the
failure and include the relevant portion of your config (or a link to
the whole thing).
