filter_relay doesn't actually get called until you do a MAIL FROM:
Make sure you're not telnetting in from an allowed address, and
try going through the entire SMTP conversation.  It should stop after

(You can't call filter_relay with the HELO info from mfconnect, because
you don't have a HELO yet.  And you shouldn't call filter_relay
from the "helo" callback, because some Sendmail sites will accept
mail even without an initial HELO.)
