I see in my logs a small number of failed logins from an IP, which is blocked in CSF at 00:04am

xxxx.xxx.xxx.xxx # lfd: (smtpauth) Failed SMTP AUTH login from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx. (AU/Australia/New South Wales/Sydney/xxx.xxx.xxx.xx.static.exetel.com.au): 1 in the last 3600 secs - Mon May 14 00:04:44 2018

If I look in my exim reject log, I can see that the logins continued after this time.
How could this happen ??

Does anyone from CSF participate in this forum.
I regularly see lots of questions with little or no credible answers.
