I have placed a modified tcpd at fbti.et-inf.fho-emden.de /pub/debian-local
(just extract tcpd76new.tar.gz from the root directory to install it). It
allows you to include a list of hostnames in the client_list. The syntax is:

/etc/hosts.deny:
sendmail: /etc/mail/spammers


Or for the extended syntax:

/etc/hosts.allow:
sendmail: /etc/mail/spammers : banners /etc/tcpd.banners : DENY


Please test the new version and let me know if it works for you within the
next days.


Thanks,

Peter
