    Reject the request unless one of the following is true:

        * Postfix is mail forwarder: the resolved RCPT TO domain
          matches $relay_domains or a subdomain thereof, and contains
          no sender-specified routing (user@elsewhere@domain),

        * Postfix is the final destination: the resolved RCPT TO
          domain matches $mydestination, $inet_interfaces,
          $proxy_interfaces, $virtual_alias_domains, or
          $virtual_mailbox_domains, and contains no sender-specified
          routing (user@elsewhere@domain).

    The relay_domains_reject_code parameter specifies the response
    code for rejected requests (default: 554).
