I now use postfix-policyd to handle greylisting, mainly because it
stores it's DB in MySQL so is easy to admin and cleanup.

It handles yahoo, aol, etc by whitelisting the servers.  This seems to
be the only way of dealing with these (broken) mail clusters.

Are RH still pushing sendmail as the MTA? <Shameless Plug>Switch to
