Re: Greylisting for @debian.org email, please

We whitelisted about every client we received mail from the past year,
so the number of complaints was pretty low. If you also follow the
logs closely for a while, you'll find a few sites you'll have to
whitelist, particularly mailing list hosts.

Greylisting without massive whitelisting _will_ give you complaints.

Sounds like you've been a victim of a poorly implemented greylisting
service.  However, your idea of having a user-configurable greylisting
would be a definite bonus.
