Maybe I spoke too soon on this working. I added the delay_checks (actually uncommented it)
in the file. I then ran make on it. Saw that was indeed created. I then
restarted my MailScanner and saw greylisting happening first. However, I am still seeing
553 reject messages. If I go back and grep through the maillog on the IP or server name 
I don't see any greylisting entry.

What am I missing here?
