I upgrade my sistem to Red Hat 4 + Sendmail 8.13 + MailScanner-4.57.6-1 ( RPM
install). I want to use greet_pause option.

My MTA will wait a few seconds before greeting but after that a spammer could
send lots of mails. For this reason, I am looking for a way of limiting the
number of mails accepted per connection. I have searched the www.sendmail.org
but couldn't find anything useful. Is there a way for doing this.
