Thanks for responding Chris.  I am currently using the MAPS with rblsmtpd, I guess the spam I'm
getting isn't coming from an open relay.  Actually, the
spammers usually relay through a valid mail server for their
network that isn't an open relay on the internet, it's just
allowing users who are behind it to go through it.  I guess
in this case my best bet would be to forward it to their
admins since I can't block by originating IP...

badmailfrom is useless. :-) People can arbitrarily set their envelope
sender anyway.

Look into rblsmtpd, included with the ucspi-tcp package. You can make it
use the MAPS RBL (, and you can specify your
own list of addresses (that's IP address, not envelope sender address)
to block.
