Sorry, I don't really understand your question.

You can probably drop the connection wherever you want to - Exim is pretty
flexible - but presumably you want to drop only /some/ connections, not all of
them. What criteria do you intend to use to distinguish between the two? At
what phase of the SMTP transaction would you like the connection to be
dropped?
