Just turned on the HostRejectList param. This is great!!
I have a number of customers who do no business outside of the US.
They block all foreign registry IP addresses. This gets rid of alot of SPAM.
It became impossible to do this with the mail server, once we started using NST because the server only sees 127.0.0.1 as the incoming IP address.

One question, though.
It appears that a conversation still takes place, even though the connection is rejected.

When an IP Address is rejected, shouldn't the NST proxy just say "Goodbye" to the connection?

Here's an example...
