No, this isn't how it works. With "smtp_auth none;" only the
first MAIL FROM with the fist RCPT TO is passed to the auth
script. Once it responds with "Auth-Status: OK", the connection
is passed to a smtp backend returned, and an opaque pipe is
established - that is, more recipient addresses can be passed
there, and even more messages. The backend is expected to be
properly configured to do actual recipient checking itself. What
nginx smtp proxy layer does is initial filtering - whether we are
willing to talk to this client, or not at all.
