Bug#685460: greylistd: breaks rfc-conformant behaviour of exim4
I just checked by DNS/Mail setup and discovered that breaks delivery to
postmaster or hostmaster unconditionally.
Usually the mails directed to postmaster or hostmaster should be accepted
unconditionally, instead of being piped through greylisting or
spam-filtering. The default exim4-config respects this any has only a
limited set of ACLs before the check for postmaster.
Ideally there should be a better place to put the config blocks instead of
blindly on the top. For me it would suffice to provide an option while
installing the config, that allows to choose the position, while defaulting
to a RFC-conformant behaviour.
