On my system, about 18-20% of the grey listed email eventually gets delivered. Of the 20% that gets delivered, about 50% of that is spamtagged by SpamAssassin. About 80-85% of the connections to the server are rejected outright (RBL, invalid hostname, etc), before greylisting has a chance at the message. If greylisting was in front of our RBL and header checks, it's percentages of ultimately rejected spam would be much higher.
May I ask about whitelisting? Submitters, usual contacts and/or known hosts can be whitelisted
* from greylisting, to gain in immediateness, and * from SA, to avoid false positives.
Do you do that, either systematically or case by case?
There are certain large domains that you need to exempt from greylisting for one reason or another. these domains are often in an exceptions list that comes with whatever package you use. I use postgrey and it lists things like:
# greylisting.org: Southwest Airlines (unique sender, no retry) southwest.com # greylisting.org: Yahoo Groups servers (no retry) scd.yahoo.com # greylisting.org: isp.belgacom.be (wierd retry pattern) isp.belgacom.be # greylisting.org: Ameritrade (no retry) ameritradeinfo.com # greylisting.org: Amazon.com (unique sender with letters) amazon.com
I do not whitelist anything other than these with the exception of my admin email account.
I have no whitelist exceptions for Spam-Assassin at all. Spammy mail that gets tagged needs to be learned.
