OT - GreetPause question

Done a little googling, but didn't see a specific answer. Don't belong
to the sendmail mail list, but probably should join - I belong to too
It's OT so I'll listen to whatever comes my way.
I use GreetPause. I have a default time set at 5000 in my
sendmail.mc(cf) for 5 seconds. I have my own servers set at 0 so that
there is no delay invoked. I have found where I can put different
delays other than zero for certain IPs to override the default in the
sendmail.cf, but I don't see it working (or maybe the spammers are
really following the rules and wait). The override feature of GreetPause
may only be valid in 8.14 sendmail for values other than 0.
So that is my question - is it valid to put something like
"GreetPause:xx.yy.zz 20000" in my access file, remake the access.db
in sendmail 8.13? It doesn't give a warning when I remake it, but I see
no pre-greeting messages for the inserted values in my logs.
Thanks for any help. I'll continue looking elsewhere as I'm sure I've
just overlooked it.
