Require PTR lookups for postfix


how do I setup postfix to require reverse DNS lookups to prevent some spam.? I did some googling, but couldn't find it.

Check the postfix man pages: man 5 postconf

In particular:

reject_unknown_client
Reject the request when the client IP address has no PTR (address to name) record in the DNS, or when the PTR record does not have a matching A (name to address) record.

The unknown_client_reject_code parameter specifies the response code for rejected requests (default: 450). The reply is always 450 in case the hostname lookup failed due to a temporary problem.
