Does anybody have sensible numbers about that?

On my relatively small server, I usually have between 0 and 40 messages in 
the deferred queue.  Of those, up to 1 or 2 are due to greylisting.  All 
others are because recipients have crap mailservers or nameservers.

As madduck said: either you are small, so your mailserver isn't loaded 
anyway, or you're big, so the additional load from greylisting isn't 
noticeable, or you're a spammer.

Hmm.  Discussing mail problems on irc while answering mailing list mail in a 
mail setup related mail thread mail confuses me mail. can't mail stop mail.
