Sounds like letting it through because it's SPF-compliant is not such a
good idea. Why am I not surprised? That's probably configurable (I use
postgrey, so I'm not sure).

Also I recommend setting your timeout to something like 30 seconds. The
one disadvantage of greylisting is that when you sign up for a new
account on a website you have to wait for that email to come through.
Sometimes they have a button to resend the activation email, which will
come through after the timeout. It stinks to have to wait 5 minutes to
hit that button, but 30 seconds is almost up by the time you checked
your email, saw it wasn't there, and remembered you have greylisting.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
