If I have read and understood the manual on Spam stopping correctly, under
SIMS there is no way to block a specifc username at the server level -- this
is more of a Communigate function.  Correct?

I am getting hammered by one machine that is not passing a username but is
using an (from what I can tell at least).  Here is the header

Now the thing that really confuses me is that I have "verify return path"
clicked.  I read the documentation to say that whenever the return path is
left blank, the server rejects the message.

Where did I go wrong!?!?
