Yes. Here is the relevant part of /etc/postfix/

To reproduce, from my DSL connection, I do

 > telnet 25

220 ESMTP Postfix
mail from:<me>
250 2.1.0 Ok
rcpt to:<>
250 2.1.5 Ok
354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>

The rcpt to address must be valid, of course, and the DNSBL disabled. 
After entering the ".", I immediately receive an error that the message 
has been rejected as Spam.
