I installed from source.  But there are Debian and Ubuntu packages.

Judging from http://greylstd.cmeerw.org/ and the code I have, the 
current version is 2 years old.  I been using it for a year, probably 
more, not one problem, the only part that need attention are the Hotmail 
/ Google / Yahoo and similar that retry from a different IP, you white 
list the whole domain.

It's just one source code file in C, python fans hate this but C is 
leaner and faster.  The real documentation is in the site above.
