Cyrus doesn't have access to that low level of data.  All you will
have at the Cyrus level is the remote IP address.

There are various methods you can use here, including operating system
level firewalls that only allow packets from particular MACs through on
particular ports (i.e 143, 110).

I suggest you approach the support forums for firewalls on your
operating system.  This is not something that we can help you with
at the Cyrus level.
