Here is the part of the config that you are looking for I think:

# When requestor replies on the block in pending state RTIR
# changes state, you can set regular expresion so state would
# be changed only when it matches
Set($RTIR_BlockAproveActionRegexp, undef);


Set($RTIR_BlockAproveActionRegexp, firewallteam at noc.isp.com);

It is not clear if this changes the block state:
a) sending an email to place a block
b) sending an email to remove a block
c) both.
