Excellent. Word of advice, watch your logs to see if
any mail doesn't retry. Some real mail servers don't,
I encountered a few the other day, Blueyonder stands
out as one to look out for, add the following to your
greylisting whitelist in

/var/lib/greylistd/whitelist-hosts   #blueyonder   #blueyonder   #blueyonder   #blueyonder   #blueyonder   #blueyonder  #blueyonder  #blueyonder

For the benefit of thread readers:

I have a custom Exim setup based on Vexim, so for me
the greylisting ACL went in the Vexim file which deals
with receipt checks. I think in most standard Exim
installs there are a set of ACLs which are commented
out but are designed for calling spam blacklists and
ClamAV. This I think would be the equivalent place,
just after these and possibly after accept
authenticated users and hosts for which we are

I do spam blacklists and ClamAV before greylisting, so
that anyone that fails the above doesn't get as far as
being listed in my greylist.

Mostly written by me, with my config, with some useful
