I know what it is. The access db is a way to manually block senders, 
which is not what I asked for.

Anyway, I found a script that did what I was looking for, modified it, 
integrated it into the apf firewall so that the ip of spammers trying a 
dictionary name attack (or rumplestiltskin if you want to correct name) 
were added to the block list of the firewall. It's working beautifully 
now, I've blocked 10 spam relays today already, which is probably 1,000 
pcs spam.
This form of spam attack was driving me nuts, for some reason they like 
my domain.
I'm happy to share the method with anyone who is interested.
