Doesn't work for me. I did it the way you suggested above and it still allows
remote connections to this port. Before, I tried the following:

/etc/hosts.allow is empty (zmailer-wise)

	mailq: ALL@ALL except ALL@

which also didn't work. So, I tried yet different solution - I added the mailq
service to /etc/inetd.conf and restarted inetd. As it was to be expected,
inetd refused to service this port since the socket was already in use by
zmailer. I'm running Zmailer 2.99.50-s5.
