Looks like we just have to turn off the tool, rather than being able to whitelist the known volume senders

I don't know if this will help, but I searched the archived lfd.log files and there are 0 lines matching LOCALHOSTRELAY. 10 minutes after the update to 8.17, entries like these below began appearing.

Apr 4 10:38:33 host2 lfd[337247]: *Exceeded LOCALHOSTRELAY limit* from ::1 (107 in the last hour)

So if ::1 is the IPv6 equivalent of the local server 127.0.0.1, why would that be parsed from the logs as the account name?

That just needs a small change in the email to check for ::1 to change the words "Local Account" to "localhost" as it currently does for 127.0.0.1 which we will do for the next csf release.

I've the same issue (needing to use an authenticating SMTP server). Can anyone advise as to how to do this with version 6.10 which I've just installed locally?

Currently running csf: v9.30 and get these messages all the time from mailman.

LOCALHOSTRELAY, IPv6 localhost - ::1
I've tried adding mailman, list-email, list-email-bounces (both of those redacted), to no avail.
Is it possible to get CSF to stop complaining about these mailman sends?
