Deny external email to admin account

Search didn't turn up anything useful.

Due to a successful dictionary attack I'd now like to deny all email to the admin@mydomain.com account sent to the server from an external source. Any clues as to how I may accomplish this?

Hi,

AFAIK the mechanisms in the SMTP daemons itself won't give you that possibility, but maybe it would be possible to use some special configuration in Anti-Spam software (like SpamAssassin) ?

install mailfront rules and deny all mail to admin@mydomain.com.  Forward all admin notices to another e-mail.

Just one possible way.
