Hm, trying to do this but when I try to send a message to elmo it says
the mailbox is disabled, even though I'm sending from an address that is
marked OK, just like your example. I made the changes using webmin. I
looked at /etc/mail/access and it looks just like your example. 

Any thoughts? I'll keep trying. 

Also, looks like I can use this to restrict outgoing too? I'd like to do
that as well. Obvious I only want to restrict the kids and not myself.
