The cf file is NOT the access.db file. The former is configuration 
options the latter access control. Are you talking the access-db option 
or the file option?

Please show the options in question you have changed.

I'm assuming your /etc/mail/milter-cli.cf file has the following option 


which is different from the default.

First multiple milter-cli-Connect: have no affect. They do not 
work in combination with other tags (this has been a point of discussion 
in a separate thread for a new set of tags to do combinations).

Second this "milter-cli-To:!*kevin@kretz.net*! REJECT" will not work. 
You want to say:

milter-cli-To:kretz.net		!*kevin@kretz.net*!REJECT

The left-hand-side can NOT specify a pattern, only the right-hand-side 
can contain a list of pattern-action pairs and default.

Currently no way to do this combo.
