Do you mean this?

# Send an email alert if anyone logs in successfully using SSH
#
# SECURITY NOTE: This option is affected by the RESTRICT_SYSLOG option. Read
# this file about RESTRICT_SYSLOG before enabling this option:
LF_SSH_EMAIL_ALERT = "1"

No.. I need only stop temporary nail alerts like that

Time: Sun Sep 6 08:37:35 2020 +0300
IP: 189.163.20.135 (MX/Mexico/dsl-189-163-20-135-dyn.prod-infinitum.com.mx)
Failures: 5 (sshd)
Interval: 3600 seconds

I received 400-500 mail every day. I need continue the block function but stop this mail. And only see PERMANENT block mail

You can use this and set it to not send emails but you won't get any blocked alerts
# Send an email alert if an IP address is blocked by one of the [*] triggers
LF_EMAIL_ALERT = "1"

You could also create a special email account just to receive the LFD alerts and redirect the emails there. You can probably set up some rules to filter the emails coming in so you can differentiate what is what. Or just filter those and send them to trash.

I don't think I get any on mine but my settings are:
LF_SSHD = "5"
LF_SSHD_PERM = "1"
