If you are using ASSP, why not just use its greylisting feature? No need to run them both, even if it didn't cause an issue. The g...

You would simply iterate through your domain accounts and then do Account.FetchAccounts.Add() and then set the various properties and call Save().

The best place to look for examples is most likely in the source code for the hMailAdmin utility, it uses the API for everything.
