Just block the subnet 22.214.171.124
changed: dr.goyal at mtsindia.in 20110522
If spammy attempts also came from some 126.96.36.199
other than 188.8.131.52 then block the whole thing.
Makes life easier (I silently drop all SMTP connections
from *.cn on my server, after receiving gazillions of spam
emails without a single valid message, life's better now).
Note that with our current setup a single malicious account
can wreak havoc in /draft/
This is bound to happen.
