    Is there a simple way to block an IP address for inbound mail?

    Some of my customers are being inundated with Sober X emails, all from the same IP address.

    Thank you,
    Tim

    Thank you. I will read up on iptables to better understand this solution.

    Could an entry in the hosts.deny file also be a solution?
