I was running clustered servers that shared the same greylist database.
   I whitelisted the users who didn't like the delays and shortened the
timeouts globally and per user/domain and yes the improvements I was
getting were good.

My thoughts were that if greet_	pause was getting rid of 90% of the cr*p
that grey-listing was doing - what was the point of an additional
overhead to maintain and configure.

As I said the results from grey-listing were superb but the day to day
management overhead, although not significant, was not worth the extra
10% it was giving me.  Plus it removed the standard complaint of why
isn't my mail arrived yet.....
