We have just about everything we want, with one exception- I have no way to easily add an IP address (or range) or domain to manually blacklist.
Yes, you can do it with complex tables and hashes that have to be rebuilt every time you want to add or change something in it. But isn't there a way I can have either Postfix or Postgrey just look in a plain text file for a list of banned IP's/names without having to rebuild a hash table every time (and sometimes even reloading Postfix)?
Then make sure you have "check_client_access hash:/etc/postfix/client_access" in your "smtpd_client_restrictions" section (or any section) in /etc/postfix/main.cf.
All you need to do is type "addblacklistedip x.x.x.x" and hit enter. In fact, you can name the script anything you want. "blacklist" "badip" etc. It will append the IP with REJECT in your client_access file and postmap it. This will stop the IP from connecting to Postfix.
