This is what the dccm man page says about "-a IGNORE".

	specifies the action taken when DCC server counts or -t thresholds
	say that a message is unsolicited bulk.  IGNORE causes the message
	to be unaffected except for adding a header line to the message.
	Spam can also be REJECTed, or accepted and silently DISCARDed with-
	out being delivered to local mailboxes.  The default is REJECT.

What do you mean by "ignore and accept"?  If it is for the SMTP client
to be told 250-OK but for the message to be discarded, then as with
sendmail access_DB files, you might want "-aDISCARD" instead.

Mail from is usually whitelisted.  You might need to add
"-g not-IP" to turn off that whitelisting.
