How to set Access Control setting to allow messages only from Postini and other hosted anti-spam solution server IP addresses.
550 mail from rejected when the Anti-spam server attempts connection with the GWIA.

Resolution

Hosted Anti-spam Solutions provide a front to the GroupWise Internet Agent. The desired configuration allows GWIA to accept a connection from the Anti-spam servers IP addresses only.
Access control Exceptions for the GWIA to accept from Certain IP addresses and reject all other connections can be set as follows:
1) Edit the default class of server to prevent incoming messages. This setting will prevent all SMTP connection to the GWIA
2) Set exceptions and add the server IP addresses GWIA will accept connections from (IE: hosted Anti-spam servers IP addresses such with 64.18.1.* and 64.18.2.*.)
3) Add an exception to allow mail from the following:
"This is the setting needed for the GWIA to also allow the sender names in the "mail from:") field during the SMTP communication."
List all possible domain variations in this exception:
*@*.*
*@*.*.*
*@*.*.*.*
*@*.*.*.*.*
