kill connections

I run netstat -a | grep smtp
and I see connections like these :


tcp        0      0 *:smtps                     *:*                         LISTEN
tcp        0      0 *:smtp                 *:*                         LISTEN
tcp        0      0 myserver:47197    spf2.us4.outblaze.com:smtp  ESTABLISHED

tcp        0      0 myserver:47264    spf6.us4.outblaze.com:smtp  ESTABLISHED

I have added with iptables deny to outgoing and incoming to spf6.us4.outblaze.com
but it still connected.
how can I kill the connections ?

I did restart the smtp (qmail) and pop3 server from the panel (plesk) many times but i still see these connections..
is there any way to kill them with some shell command ? just like we can kill a process ?

no, i guess.
The only way to close this connections is close the service or restart the server.

run netstat with -p option(get the pid), then kill the process which hold the connection.
