Right.  Blocking the IP address at the firewall would result in you
offloading the processing burden from your server to the firewall.
Firewalls are typically well equipped to handle packet drops so it would
make sense to do this at this level.  Note that you need to follow up with
this as well to ensure that you are not blocking legitimate email at a
future time.

    You should block not only the e-mail address.  But try and block using
the network address 
instead this is more granular.

Subject: Blocking IP address??

Hey there,

My E2K server is getting spammed from the following IP and
with a ton of messages . 
As the subject on the spam is changing, would it be better to stop the IP at
the FW, or continue to try to block the spammer via email?
As well, is there a way to block the IP on the E2K server?
