The greeting value is the HELO/EHLO identity. RFC 4408 (SPF) recommends 
checking both the mail from domain as well as the HELO identity, so this value 
is useful and could be passed to proc_message() function (API for "doing 
something useful with this message"). Later versions of the code pass the same 
values, so this is relevant for 2.7, 3.2, and 3.3.
