If there are AUTHORIZED SENDERS specified, only those users can address
the group.

5.1 This field is used as a screen when a user tries to edit a mail group
that he is a coordinator of. If the screen fails and the user does not
hold the XMMGR key, he cannot edit the mail group.

Even if the coordinator is REMOVED from the Mail System, this field will
remain to indicate who created the Mail Group if others can use it. If it
is a Personal Group, it will be deleted.
POINTER INDEXED New_Person-200
Authorized Sender
  authorized_sender
6 If you wish to restrict this mail group to only a limited set of senders,
name them in this field. If no names are entered here, then it is assumed
that anyone may send mail to this group (if public), or only members
may send to it (if private).

If a user attempts to send mail to a group which has one or more authorized
senders, but is not an authorized sender, then he is shown a list of
authorized senders. He may send the message to them, and they may forward
it, if desired.

NOTE: Remote users may not send mail to any local group which has
authorized senders
POINTER   New_Person-200

make themselves members of the group, or to drop their names from the
group. This option is only operative with public groups.

This field controls who may address (send messages to) this
PRIVATE mail group.
