see following sendmails options for more details:

O PrivacyOptions=goaway
O AllowBogusHELO=false
O LogLevel=

You may also use the delivery agent F=w flag in the rules to identify "unfriendly mailusers" and reject delivery.

Probably most users go away when rhe PrivacyOptions are used.

A much better solution for most users is to rip out sendmail
and drop in qmail, zmailer, or exim.  Of the three, I found
exim to be the easiest to configure.
