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:
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?
