You currently have ClientNeedsPTR=1 set. This test is done early before 
the MAIL and RCPT commands have been issued, so currently the only way 
to prevent it is tell the sender to implement reverse DNS for their 
connecting host, white list the IP or class, or disable the test 

Sendmail will already perform some reverse DNS checks itself and you can 
write sendmail rules to apply the equivalent of the above test. This 
might be what you want if you are using FEATURE(`delay_checks'). 
Sendmail does not apply FEATURE(`delay_checks') to milters and most of 
my milters do not support this behaviour.
