The following setup would be in compliance with rfc2821 but would
not be able to deliver mail to a greylisting host:
- retrying every hour for up to five days
- messages are sent out from 120 different IP-addresses all living in
  different /27 netblocks.
- retries do not happen on the same IP. Initial try IP-address #1, 2nd
  try IP-address #2, ... ,120th try IP-address #120

I thought the point was that someone with such a setup is unlikely to
have all 120 servers either listed on an RBL or with broken reverse
DNS. And if they are, are you sure you want to receive mail from them?

Greylisting everything is silly, and that's not what's being discussed
here (AIUI anyway).

Have a nice day,
