what's a quick and dirty way to block spam
 
I've been running a mail server for about a year now, and just recently my users have started getting spammed from one domain. I know there are filter lists I could subscribe to and a bunch of ways I could block this garbage for good, but I need to know a quick and dirty way to just block this one address for now.

Is it as simple as putting it in /etc/hosts.deny ?

Thanks in advance,

Finegan

not sure if it can help for mail.

you might like to look at both junkbuster and squid as these have filtering abilities. they might, however, only be for http. im not sure.
