[Esd-l] Sendmail unresolvable_domains

Hello all,

I remarked out this feature from the sendmail.mc file:

(and ran make and restarted sendmail)

thinking that it would stop a lot of SPAM, and it seems to have helped,
but, I still get messages with headers like this:

Received:  from ([]) by mustang.dctchambers.com
(8.12.11/8.12.11) with SMTP id i5P0I4gi010468; Thu, 24 Jun 2004 17:18:06

How do I stop this type of abuse?  As you may have noticed, the HELO
address is my mail server's IP, which would never happen, my mail server
uses and resolves it's own local name or Localhost.
