You can use the Postfix `access' map for this.  You can enable an
`access' map in Postfix by setting in your `main.cf' file:

    smtpd_client_restrictions = \
        check_client_access hash:/usr/local/etc/postfix/access

Then, in `/usr/local/etc/postfix/access' put:

    [EMAIL PROTECTED]                    REJECT

and run `postmap' on the `access' file:

    # postmap /usr/local/etc/postfix/access

Reload Postfix and off you go :-)

There are other reject options too, which offer more fine-grained
control of the SMTP error codes and the text of the error messages
Postfix will return.  See, for example:
