... and I'm not using the hunter_seeker script here.

I also remember this discussion but it was quite a while ago. I had
subsequently removed greylisting as well with no noticeable increase
in spam. I did add Sam's hunter_seeker script and it did make a
difference. However, I haven't seen any new websites added to that
blocklist so I wonder whether that is as effective as it used to be.

I don't have a link to the conversation, but I literally turned off
greylisting and turned on using RBLs at the same time.

At the suggestion of others here, I turned OFF greylisting last year,
after having used it for years before that. My spam level didn't
increase one bit. I think the RBL sites are pretty good at
identifying spam originations, so I use thatmethod now.
Hi BC, thanks for the reply. Do you have a link to that discussion you had? I'd
like to know how y'all value greylisting in today's internet climate.
I installed spamdyke at the same time as enabling several other spamassasin
network rules. The result is, our users are seeing far less spam. But with all
the changes, it's hard to say what is providing the most benefit (and what
isn't). We were using rblsmtpd before, so the blocklists aren't a new aspect.
Perhaps I'lll leave greylisting enabled for another week, then turn it off and
go another week and compare the metrics.
