I have this huge amount of emails coming from a blank email , I can't decide whether it's a spam or not so am trying to block any blank FROM email for testing.

 how can i block a blank "from" in mail system ; here is a line  "looks
 like" from maillog file  :

 [public IP]: <>: Sender address triggers FILTER smtp-amavis:[my local
 IP]:port; from=<> to=<usr at mydomain.bla> proto=ESMTP helo=<some.domain>

Blocking the unspecified sender will break email.  It's used for
non-delivery reports.

 although the match between FROM address and sasl username is
 configured but i still can see blank FROM :(

There is no evidence of authentication in the log you pasted.

 did i miss something ?

What is the problem you are actually trying to solve?
