I have enabled SMTPAUTH_RESTRICT on csf and whitelist my country in CC_ALLOW_SMTPAUTH.
I intend to relay only clients from my country..
I works but i still have a few alerts like this:

Time: Sun Oct 18 23:54:13 2020 +0200
Temporary Blocks: 5
Temporary blocks that triggered the permanent block:
Sun Oct 18 19:37:31 2020 (smtpauth) Failed SMTP AUTH login from XXXXXXXXXXXX (AU/Australia/-): 5 in the last 3600 secs

Australia is not on CC_ALLOW_SMTPAUTH.
why do these exceptions happen? thanks
