And i thought, this is "default" besides the unusual textblock :)


  # Hosts are required to say HELO (or EHLO) before sending mail.
  # So don't allow them to use the MAIL command if they haven't
  # done so.

  deny condition = ${if eq{$sender_helo_name}{} {1}}
           message = Nice boys say HELO first

You can find it i.e. in the default redhat configfile.
