    We are getting buried in Spam, and I need to find a way to restrict Sendmail so that any IP address or portion thereof (84.123, 195.234.113, 80, 112.164.55.213, etc.) will not be allowed to send us mail.

    I thought I could use the blacklist in the control panel but that seems to only work for DOMAIN names which is stupid because half of them are fake and blocking on that is a waste of time....

    Suggestions?

    I read that kB and if I am not mistaken, it deals with its own internal spam more than what is being received from the outside.

    All I want to know is, what can I do to block IP Address from being able to send us mail.....

    Have you considered using firewall rules?

    iptables -A INPUT -s <IP> -j DROP
