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.
