Greylisting works great, but it still processes the mail. And eventually, the
bot will break through the timeout. So greylisting only works so far with the
slamming kind of attack and it will bring your server to a dead stop.
I would seriously recommend great_pause for sendmail and postscreen for
postfix. I hope that their is an equivalent for qmail.... etc. Seriously does
a great job
