Huh, a delay is a very bad thing - whatever a techie does on the background
should never interfere with a user. And greylisting cannot be responsible
for 100% of the emails being delayed, the concept has a learning process
where this 30 minute or so delay gets reduced with time. Mail delay for an
hour is plain incompetence!
