Port is no different wether is coming from another SMTP server or from a
Telnet client. It is not application specific. If you want to receive
mail and you are worrying about relaying or some other security issue,
then you have to take measures to secure your smtp service. It is

to exploit them for purposes other than what the owner of the server
