You don't retry on a greylist. You wait 20-30-40 minutes and try again.
For buxtehude.debian.org it's closer to 40 minutes.

Usually your MTA takes care of those details, but here a reportbug tried
a direct connection to buxtehude.debian.org ...
I don't know, honestly. Try it again in 40 minutes, I guess.

Yep. I usually use reportbug to generate an e-mail only, and send it by
more conventional means.

If your MUA allows to specify it - keep it as it is.
If it does not - just drop it.

It's an e-mail body that matters to bugs.d.o anyway.
