Lazy? WTF is the point of smtp auth for your own lan...
I abandoned smtp-auth years ago because too many customers can use it to
get you blacklisted (deliberate spam) it was more of a hassle then thats
its worth, if they are not on our network they can use their own ISP's
smtp and not ours.
I will always allow all of our IP ranges for relay on the cust-out-smtp's
as there is nothing at all wrong with doing so, so long as you don't add in
IP ranges that aren't your own, and since no network competently setup
routes RFC1918 addresses, its moot point.
