This really is not a function of DHCPd. Really, DHCPd is just a service
that is being provided, such as a web, mail, or DNS server, and not a
traffic control or network management system.
To answer your question, it really depends on your environment. You mention
"customer", and the website associated with your e-mail domain tends to make
me believe that you are an ISP/telecom provider. In this case, look to your
access devices (DSLAM, wireless, etc) for the ability to prevent access
without first obtaining a DHCP lease. Don't know what you are using (or if
I am even close to your situation here), but Paradyne and Allied Telesis
equipment (the brands we use) both have features for this. I haven't dug
really deeply into this, but I would tend to believe that IDS/IPS devices
could also be used to monitor and control the access for a rogue customer.
If I am way off here, I apologize. The important thing to remember is my
first paragraph: DHCPd only assigns and tracks IP addresses within the rules
that you provide, nothing else. DHCPd does what it does very well, and has
lots of power and versatility, but it is not meant to do anything but that.
Just my $.02...
