Sendmail --> Blocking email from senders

Is there a way for sendmail 8.11.6 to be configured to block certain senders from sending me emails. Kind of like a filtering process.

First of all: Thanks that you are a contributing member

Regarding your question:
Yep it's possible using /etc/mail/access, just add an entry of the form:
Code:	550 Rejected due massive amout of spam!	550 Rejected due massive amout of spam!
Check /usr/share/doc/sendmail-8.11.6/, section access_db for more information regarding this!
