The above should have worked. Are there any REJECT entries concerning 
this user or host? Is milter-sender consulting the access database 
(restart it and watch the maillog output).

Another solution is white-list the machine's IP:

	Connect:		OK

Do you forget to rebuild access.db after modifying the access text file? 
Sendmail & milter-sender will pick up the changes and should not need to 
be restarted normally.

For a machine, the Connect:IP form should solve the problem. Otherwise 
the other forms you listed above should work too. Which version of 
milter-sender are you using?
