Hi David,

On Thu, Jan 13, 2005 at 11:38:00AM -0500, David F. Skoll told us:

so that means if a spammer retries this one server he was sending from
is beyond the greylisting barrier for the next 40 days?? Or is the
greylisting mechanism also wired with the next barriers, dns blacklists,
spamassassin and so on, so that greylisting will be turned on again for
this server if this message is recognized as spam by one of the other
barriers (or by the user as last instance, by reporting the message as
spam) later??
