    my users are receiving spam from this


    Received: from [64.207.8.27] (helo=FRONT)


    I am blocking ip 64.207.8.27 using the firewall ..
    Is there any possibility to block also the helo (FRONT) working for example on exim configuration ?

    Thanks !

    If you firewall that IP or a block of IPs, then the server sending to your box will never have the opportunity to handshack with exim. So there is no need to add any deny directives in exim.
