      Description

      when an attempt to relay a message not intended for a local domain the following message is logged:
      "Rejected message - authentication is required for mail request"
      In this, and other similar error cases, it would be quite useful to append the actual failed recipient address to the log so that one can tell not only that an error had occured, but also why and by whom...

      Adding such simple useful information to logs (this and others) can make it much easier to diagnose delivery issues, rather than having a red light light up on the dashboard but not knowing what's wrong with the car (as the well known MS GPF story goes...)
