The safest way to do this is to enable and configure SMTP AUTH. This is
based on SASL, and you'll need to yum list "*cyrus-sasl*" to see the
packages you need. You can use plain text auth over starttls and the
user can then authenticate with their username and password securely. If
you don't use starttls, you'll need a more secure authorization mechanism.
This will allow the user to authenticate and relay mail no matter what
IP address or network they are accessing your server from. Here's a link
for more information.
