Hi David,

I just found why queueing never really worked here on my
side. We used a modified 'examples/init-script.in' as startup
script and in this script, ALLOW_NEW_CONNECTIONS_TO_QUEUE
is not defined in the header.

If ALLOW_NEW_CONNECTIONS_TO_QUEUE=yes is not set, queueing
only works up to 5-10 queued messages, afterwords the filter
is tempfailing. I thought long time that this is some mimedefang
bug and I never gave it significant importance. But since the
spam amount is constantly growing, queueing is more and more
important for us.

So can you please add a comment to examples/init-script.in
and maybe set ALLOW_NEW_CONNECTIONS_TO_QUEUE=no in the header
too ? This way new users can change that value and don't need
to stick with the sourcecode to find out what ALLOW_NEW_CONNECTIONS_TO_QUEUE
really means :-)
