Yes, that is the cleanest solution: provide a dedicated submission port
or an entire dedicated mailer for mail submission (MSA), so that amavisd
will know (through a policy bank) that mail originated from a trusted
(implicitly or explicitly authenticated) source which is approved
by an MTA for mail submission.

In case where some clients insist on submitting on port 25, there are
two choices. The cleanest again is a dedicated mailer for mail submission.
If that is not an option, and a post-queue content filtering is acceptable
for such submitted mail, a Postfix magic through its FILTER on sender- or
client- restrictions allows to distuinguish between authenticated and
non-authenticated incoming mail. This is described in:
