That's simple: i am blocking them on username.
I am blocking johndoe's pop3 session. In Postfix I forward all mail for 
johndoe to johndoe at another.email.adress.com
So johndoe can still receive mail.

The text I am sending could be any text, from 'your pop3 box = blocked' 
to '<any errornumber> on your POP3 box'
