I don't know Julian, I think I'm probably not alone in thinking that you could write a pretty kickass MTA.  :-)  In any case, I wasn't proposing it as a MailScanner feature, but just wondering what people on here thought of the concept of "greylisting" in general.  There seems to be something not quite right about it which I can't put my finger on.
