You could use new ability of milter-greylist (from 4.0 version), that 
provides method to limit connections by any criteria, such as remote ip, 
sender/recipient address, authentication status and many more.
You could extend configuration by using external helper, that can be 
reached by, for example, ldap or http protocols.
