If you tried putting "linux postfix block ip address" and/or "block originating address" into Google, you'd have been able to find the answer. That's always a good starting point, and that's been pointed out to you before, too.

Sorry, but Google has THOUSANDS of VERY easily found sites that explain what you're looking for, and how to do it. For:
"linux postfix block ip address" - 315,000 hits
"linux postfix block originating address" - 396,000 hits

Are you still going to say that you can't find anything on Google???? And I already looked it up for you, and posted the links in my reply...did you not bother to read them? Have you put ANY effort into this?

There's usually little help with blocking individual IP addresses or fake sender addresses. Spammers are very fast at changing their techniques so it is not feasible to react to each and every new form of spam e-mail received.

I would suggest that you implement a generic anti-spam solution (I recommend spamassassin) that will take care of most spam now and in the future.
