fail2ban doesnt seem to be working. am i missing something?

So i was checking my mail.log for a login issues and i see the same ip attempting to login to an account on my mail server about once every 10- 20 seconds. now the account hasnt been breached thus far and ive checked to ensure that account has a strong password, but shouldnt fail2ban be blacklisting this ip address to stop it from spamming the server? have i missed some essential configuration to make it do this?

It seems Fail2ban in ajenti has a TON of non standard configs, im afraid of breaking something here, any advice where to go? it actually seems that fail2ban is only protecting the ssh system not the mail system as well? how is this set up?
