Enforcing authentication breaks forwarding ;-p
There is nothing you can do about this except reject the forwarded mail
or accepte non authenticated mail...
suppose user A sends mail to an external account which forwards to user
B (both A and B are in your domains). then your server will get mail
with A as sender from an external MTA (which won't auth because). and
the problem is related to B setup, so you can't just exclude A from your
sender login maps.
you can however accept unauthenticated mail from a list of MTAs, but
that may be a lot of work...
