If you do this, it seems you confuse spam filtering / blocking

Please change the name of your service to email blocking, so that it matches the service
Summary in case this link breaks in future:
rfc2821 - ...

An SMTP server MAY verify that the domain name parameter in the EHLO command actually corresponds
to the IP address of the client. However, the server MUST NOT refuse to accept a message for this reason
if the verification fails: the information about verification failure is for logging and tracing only.
