Indeed.  Local policy trumps anything else.

If I decide, for whatever reason, to only accept mail from systems whose 
IP contains a 3, that's my right as sysadmin.  I wouldn't do something 
like this on a business system, or ISP mail system, but for a private 
server I'm free to accept or reject whatever traffic I like based on 
whatever criteria I like.
