Where are these users located?

You can turn off relaying for everywhere except localhost, which will
give any non-local clients a "relaying denied" error; using port 587
they will need to authenticate and that will override the relay check.

You can't easily tell the different between an MUA and an MTA connecting
to your port 25 - they are both acting as SMTP clients. This is why port
25 blocking became necessary in the first place.
