want to lock a spammer (or two) from the 200 odd IP addresses they arrive at.

Understand I can do it in the virtual host declaration using

order deny,allow
deny from XXX.XX.XX.XX,XXX.XXX.XX.XXX,XXX.XXX.XXX

does this look right to you guys ?

This should work:

deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

One way or another this will be his last gasp, he made 611 attempts in the last 2 hours to junk mail via a formmail script which has now been updated, trouble is I am now getting the bounces!!!

Still only a short life left for his accounts.

Want to find a way to kill this off though.
